Political Games Are Not A Housing Solution – Dunne

Parliament wasted two days this week debating the Housing Legislation Amendment Bill under Urgency. An inept mixture of opposition political gamesmanship and Government organisation meant that the Bill was essentially filibustered by the Opposition. “We spent 17 hours arguing about a Bill that has the potential to add up to 9000 additional houses to Auckland…

Dunne Speaks: The Rise of the Uber Economy

Last week’s flurry about whether Uber was complying with the law and should be shut down if it was not missed the point entirely. Of course, Uber should comply with the law of the land – that is a given for any business operating here – but that was not really the issue. The bigger…

“CURATE’S EGG” SECURITY LEGISLATION FAR FROM IDEAL

UnitedFuture leader Peter Dunne says the Government’s new security legislation is the proverbial Curate’s Egg, good in parts, but a missed opportunity overall. “I support the stricter and more transparent arrangements for the issue and review of surveillance warrants, and the application of the Privacy Principles of the Privacy Act to the intelligence legislation. “But…
