The National Party's not anticipating a silver bullet Budget.

Finance Minister Grant Robertson will reveal his fifth Budget on Thursday, with much of the focus tipped to be on climate change and health.

The Opposition's finance spokesperson, Nicola Willis told The Weekend Collective National wants income tax relief for the 'squeezed middle'.

“Those New Zealanders who haven’t benefitted from increases to benefits and working for family entitlements, but who really can’t withstand the additional costs at the supermarket, when they fill up at the pump, their rent, their mortgage payment.”
