Labour wants National to publish the bills it says it will introduce to Parliament before Christmas if it wins the election.
National's leader, John Key, yesterday set out a challenging legislative timetable for a National-led government.
His "first 100 days in government" include passing tax cuts which will come into force in April 2009 and taking through Parliament a transitional relief package to help people worst hit by redundancy as a result of the economic slowdown.
He also intends introducing at least seven big bills dealing with violent offenders, criminal gangs and youth crime, DNA testing for every person arrested for an imprisonable offence and increased police powers to protect domestic violence victims.
There will also be legislation to streamline the Resource Management Act, one of National's most important promises.
"We want to hit the ground running," he told reporters.
Labour's environment spokesman, Trevor Mallard, said if National had the bills ready for introduction it should publish them now so the public could see exactly what it intended doing.
"If it has nothing to hide, it should show voters its bills," Mr Mallard said.
Just for the record, which party is planning a December mini-budget? And which part is being very, very coy about the details therein? Yep, Trevor Mallard's party! But then of course, "This one's about trust"!!
