The Green Party has welcomed the government surplus announced yesterday as an opportunity to take stronger action on the
critical issues New Zealanders face.
Green Party co-leader James Shaw said today:
“This government has clearly established its economic credentials. Now we can seriously take on the task of eliminating
poverty and inequality, strengthen our public services and infrastructure which were so severely run down by the
previous government, and take the strong climate action which is so crucial to all of our wellbeing.
“We can’t afford not to.”
