New Zealand's wild conservation land should be protected from logging, the Green Party said today.
National has announced plans to allow logging of native forest on public land on the West Coast damaged in Cyclone Ita.
"It is illegal to log these forests, a storm is no reason to change the law," Green Party conservation spokesperson Eugenie Sage said today.
"New Zealanders fought for years to end native logging and protect the West Coast's forests. We shouldn't turn back the clock.
