“Labour wants to have less people in New Zealand prisons, but according to inmates’ literacy and numeracy enrolment numbers, they don’t seem to care about equipping them for the outside world,” says ACT’s Corrections spokesperson Toni Severin.
“Labour’s plan to “drive down youth crime” will fail because it doesn’t introduce a single consequence for youth offenders. ACT would introduce ankle bracelets for serious youth offenders,” says ACT Leader David Seymour.
“The ACT Party is once again leading with policies to solve the issues facing New Zealand. Our latest policy document tackles law and order, an area where the Government’s beltway ideology has failed and people on main street are feeling real consequences,” says ACT Leader David Seymour.
