  • Labour Party: Plan For Responding To The Economic Downturn

    The New Zealand economy is clearly facing short term challenges from the global financial turbulence. Labour will ensure that the current international crisis does not lead to a prolonged recession in New Zealand.

  • Labour Party: Minimum Wage Policy

    An effective Labour market policy can both underpin economic growth and ensure the fruits of growth can be shared fairly.

  • Labour Party: Macroeconomic Environment Policy

    A sustainable economy requires a supportive macroeconomic environment.

  • Labour Party: Productivity Policy

    A successful sustainability agenda implemented effectively should assist productivity. The main elements of increasing productivity are skills and infrastructure.


  • National Party: Maternity Care

    1. Boosting the Maternity Care Workforce

    • Establish a Voluntary Bonding Scheme that writes off student loan debt for graduate midwives who agree to work in hard-to-staff areas for three to five years. See our Voluntary Bonding Scheme for more details.

  • Labour Party: Law and Order Policy

    Labour is committed to a justice system that is modern, effective, fair and accessible. This will make offenders more accountable, reduce reoffending, help the victims of crime, and in turn, strengthen our communities.

  • Labour Party: Superannuitants Policy

    Labour will continue to adjust NZ Superannuation to ensure that the rate for a married couple is equivalent to at least 66% of the average wage.

  • Labour Party: Benefits Policy

    The benefit abatement system

    Working for Families has helped create full-time work incentives for families with children. With these full-time work incentives in place, there is now an opportunity for strengthening incentives for part-time work.

  • Labour Party: Health Policy

    Labour is committed to a public health system that people can trust, one that is there for them regardless of their ability to pay. We will build upon the positive changes to our health system over this decade to offer the best possible service for all New Zealanders.

  • Labour Party: Student Allowances Policy

    Labour has already announced plans to widen student allowance eligibility in 2009, by raising to $50,000 the parental income threshold where allowance payments begin to reduce, and lowering the age of financial independence from twenty-five to twenty-four.
