T could easily be termed “a Labour Budget”,  but the one delivered by Finance Minister Bill English last week was, of course, an election year sweetener.The big surprise of this year’s Budget is a crowd pleaser for families, and will also be welcomed by schools and health workers – yes, free GP visits for children will be extended up to age 13 with a $90 million boost.More than 400,000 more children nationwide, all primary school-aged children can go to a doctor for free, any time of the day, as well as being entitled to free prescriptions. The changes, which will be offered through general practices from July 1, 2015. Despite the pressures to cut spending to achieve a surplus, English has found enough cash to pay for a $500 million package for extending paid parental leave, and free doctor’s visits and prescriptions for under-13s, as well as boosting the parental tax credit.English has done so in in large part by  postponing start-up dates for these programmes until next year.Apart from answering critics who claim  National doesn’t care about child poverty, these schemes, which come straight out of the centre-left’s textbook, are National’s way of paying a dividend to middle New Zealand for sticking  by Key and his colleagues. It is another raid by Key into Labour territory.
“It’s a condent Budget for a condent
country,” English declared last week.“We’re in an enviable position compared with many others in the developed world. Our economy is growing steadily and creating more jobs. Average wages are rising faster
than ination. That’s happening now and
Budget forecasts show it continuing, with 170,000 more people in work by mid-2018 and unemployment projected to fall to 4.4 per cent.“This budget shows that National is responsibly managing the Government’s
nances,” English said.
“We’ll record a small surplus next year and larger surpluses in the coming years, which will allow us some extra spending, but not so much that it pushes interest rates higher than they otherwise would be.
“Responsible management over the last ve
years has allowed for some new spending this
year, and our rst priority is families. We’ve
 put children and families at the heart of our new spending. We will:Make GP visits and prescriptions free for children under 13,Extend paid parental leave from 14 to 18 weeks, and expand eligibility,

Increase the parental tax credit from $150 to $220 a week, and extend the payment period from 8 to 10 weeks, Invest $156 million over four years to help early childhood centres remain accessible and affordable,Spend $33 million on a package of measures to help the most vulnerable children.”English said lifting the quality of teaching was another priority. “It’ll help children now, and help New Zealand’s performance in the longer term.“We’re working on making houses more affordable. That’s not going to happen overnight. There are lots of things we need to do, and that councils need to do, and we’re making it happen. “New Zealanders have shown considerable resilience since the domestic recession that Labour left us with, which was followed by
the global nancial crisis and the Canterbury
earthquakes.“Assuming we stick to our economic plan, we’ve set out a timeline for reducing debt, and resuming contributions to the New Zealand Superannuation Fund,” English said.“I’m pleased to have delivered a Budget that looks ahead, for a country that’s going forward.”For details, see the Budget at a glance, page 6 & 7.
“We’re in an enviable position compared with many others in the developed world. Our economy is growing steadily and creating more jobs. Average wages are rising faster than inflation.
