The Green Party is today celebrating the Government’s response to a Green-led select committee inquiry into supporting grieving whānau with accessing and managing the tūpāpaku (deceased bodies) of their loved ones.

Responding to concerns raised by Māori about dealing with authorities regarding the tūpāpaku of deceased family members, former Greens Co-leader Metiria Turei initiated the inquiry at the Māori Affairs Select Committee. The inquiry was then driven and led by Green MP Marama Davidson.

There is no future in burning coal to produce electricity in New Zealand, the Green Party said today.

The comment comes after Genesis Energy today revealed its intention to finally put an end to using coal for electricity production by 2030.

“While it’s all well and good that Genesis has made this announcement around its intentions, in reality the time to stop burning coal is now,” said Green Party energy spokesperson Gareth Hughes.

“Coal belongs in the ground, not burnt in the atmosphere.

The Salvation Army’s annual State of the Nation report shows just how urgent the need is for welfare reform and lifting the incomes of the thousands of New Zealanders who can’t afford to house and feed their families, the Green Party said today.

The report highlighted a jump in the number of families needing food parcels to get by, as well as serious issues around youth unemployment, child poverty and housing.

“Thousands of New Zealanders are living hand-to-mouth, in the most desperate of circumstances,” said Green Party welfare spokesperson Jan Logie.
