E Te Māngai o Te Whare, tēnā koe.
Ki a koutou huri noa i Te Whare, ngā mihi o te wā ki a koutou katoa.
Mr Speaker, on Election Night 2017, I said that, “New Zealanders have voted for change!”
The three Opposition parties that night commanded a majority of votes, and I said it was time for us to work together to create the Government of change that New Zealanders wanted.
Four weeks later the Deputy Prime Minister said that there had been a choice, “between a modified status quo or for change”.
Change, Mr Speaker.
