Environment Canterbury (Temporary Commissioners and Improved Water Management) Amendment Bill - Third Reading

28.02.2013

I take a call on behalf of New Zealand First on the Environment Canterbury (Temporary Commissioners and Improved Water Management) Amendment Bill.

Has this not been an interesting week of undermining democracy in New Zealand?

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery

The Christchurch earthquakes have left many residents in a state of limbo over their lives, homes, jobs and insurance. New Zealand First MPs have inspected the damage and listened to people trying to recover from the disasters. As a result we have put forward policies to help those struggling to cope. These include providing bridging finance for people in the red zone, ‘licence to occupy’ retirement units being given the same value as unit holders, establishing a government-backed insurer and regulating rents immediately.
