News from Wellington

National’s promise to you.

The cost of living is soaring with rising rents, petrol tax increases, and electricity costs going up. That's why National has committed to no new taxes in our first term, and cutting a series of this current Government’s taxes; and unlike the Government, we'll keep our promise.


National launches ‘Have your say’ campaign for Families

National believes strong families are the foundation of a good society and that New Zealand is a great place to raise children. We want all families to feel safe, be financially secure, and have access to world-class health and education services.

Under the Labour-led Government the economy is slowing, the cost of living is rising faster than wages, and people are keeping less of what they earn. But it doesn’t have to be like that.

Part of that is ensuring we know what matters to you and your families – including how we can make New Zealand families reach their full potential. We need to make sure New Zealand has the right policies in place going into the 2020s. Share your views at



Listen, Discuss, Propose

National want to hear about what matters to you, and your ideas for New Zealand’s future.

We’re starting by listening. We know you care for New Zealand and its future, just like we do. We’ll use your input to develop discussion documents next year, and final plans and policies in preparation for Government in 2020.

So far we have conducted ‘Have your Say’ surveys for small businesses and rural communities, with more being released over the coming months– please do get involved.

MPs visit the Rotorua electorate

National’s Finance spokesperson Amy Adams, and Workplace Relations & Safety spokesperson Scott Simpson visited our electorate where they spoke to locals about the wider changes to our economy and workplaces brought in by this Labour Government.

Thank you for all those who attended, and thank you to Amy and Scott for visiting our great electorate.



Thank you Rotorua electorate

10 years ago I was first elected as the Member of Parliament for the Rotorua electorate. It remains a huge honour over these 10 years. Rotorua, Te Puke and the rural areas in between remain a very special part of New Zealand. Thank you to friends and family for all your support.
