At the RMLA/EDS seminar last night in Auckland, party spokespersons were asked about their environment policies.
EDS chairman and the seminar moderator Gary Taylor says that whichever party leads the next government now has its key environment and conservation commitments on record.
“The idea was to drill down beneath the headlines into some detail in front of an expert audience present in person and online,” said Mr Taylor. He said that in the limited time available, there was an encouraging degree of consensus on the way forward but also some big differences.
Spokespersons for the parties were David Parker (Labour), Eugenie Sage (Greens), Scott Simpson (National), Simon Court (ACT), John Tamihere (Māori Party) and David Wilson (New Zealand First).
