Maram Davidson, Green Party MP

Firstly, for clarity, Madam Chair, I'd like to ask if I am able to traverse both the social development part and the housing part in one debate?

[Madam Chair nods] Thank you, Madam Chair. My goodness, because there's a lot to traverse, to be honest, and they're all connected, and this is the thing.

Maram Davidson, Green Party MP

Thank you, Mr Speaker. So I just sat and listened through Michael Woodhouse's debate speech about all the hospitals that the previous Government—his Government—apparently fixed and ran so that they are functional.

I rise to support the Taxation (Annual Rates for 2017–18, Employment and Investment Income, and Remedial Matters) Bill.

 

Maram Davidson, Green Party MP

I'm going to start, as have many of my colleagues in this House, by acknowledging the incredible generosity of Ngāti Tūwharetoa

James presented the Green Party's fiscal plan for the 2017 election on 18 September 2017 at Biz Dojo, Wellington.

Tena koutou katoa.

Thank you so much for joining us here today, online or in the room.

I am unreasonably excited about this event and the document that we’re launching tonight.

Because what we’re doing is bringing together every policy proposal and plan that the Green Party has offered to the country, about how to make the promise of 100% Pure New Zealand a reality, into one place.

The Green Party today remains deeply concerned about the TPPA’s successor agreement, TPP-11.

"The most egregious clauses in the original TPPA were the investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) mechanisms, which were included largely at the insistence of the United States. Now that the US isn't a part of it anymore, the remaining countries should simply remove the ISDS mechanisms," said Green Party Leader James Shaw.

The Green Party today proposed creating a Regional Research Institute focused on developing high-value wood-based products for export and use in New Zealand.

Green Party leader James Shaw made the announcement at the New Zealand Institute of Forestry Annual Conference in Rotorua.

“The Greens in government will support foresters and innovators to add value to the timber they grow already, creating new jobs in the regions and greater demand for timber,” said Mr Shaw.
