Morgan Welcomes Labour’s Progress on Clean Water
August 9, 2017 - The Opportunities Party Leader Dr Gareth Morgan welcomes the Labour Party’s just released policy on freshwater saying
it is a big step in the right direction.
TOP is particularly heartened that the policy recognises the rights of Maori in regard to fresh water and that all
commercial users of water need to pay.
While TOP has issues with how Labour would set water charges, and questions whether it would place any limits on how
much water must be left to protect native ecosystems, today’s policy announcement is a big step towards TOP’s Clear
Water Action Plan.
