Read the full Security Services policy.

We'll work to stop our intelligence agencies spying on legitimate, peaceful, political dissenters

We support an inquiry as to whether the SIS should be abolished and responsibility for detecting politically motivated crime returned to the Police.

New Zealand should close the Waihopai spy base, which operates in the interests of other countries rather than our own.

To enable better oversight, a regular parliamentary select committee should replace the government-dominated Intelligence and Security Committee, and the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security should become an Officer of Parliament.
