Statement on Metiria Turei
Tonight I learned of Metiria Turei’s resignation from Parliament. In my nine years in Parliament I have seen MPs from almost all parties resign under tough circumstances. Behind almost every single one has been a history of working hard and championing the people they have represented.
I want to acknowledge Metiria’s enormous contribution to politics and important causes during the fifteen years she has been in Parliament.
We have worked together both as Parliamentary colleagues and also as members of our respective senior leadership teams. Metiria has always had a steadfast commitment to social justice, especially championing the rights of children, and changing the Government – a challenge I know we will both remain focused on.
