MPs were asked:

- The possibility of legal euthanasia is nearing, does the question need to go to the public?

- Who is your money on for the Botany electoral race?

- Does the local body election voting system need a shake-up?

- The 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton Poll revealed the Prime Minister's approval rating was +33 and National leader Simon Bridges was -22. What do you think of their performance?
