    Core Labour promises left unfunded

    “Labour is desperate to balance the books, dishonestly leaving core policies unfunded to make their numbers add up. Free school lunches are unfunded from July 2025, and the Screen Production Grant has no appropriation from this year. Labour has even failed to continue Pharmac’s $120 million funding boost from next year,” says ACT Leader David Seymour.

    Real change needed to build more homes

    “To really solve the emergency housing crisis, the next Government needs to do more than change who builds the houses for the Government. Labour says Kainga Ora should build for the Government, National says private providers should build homes for the Government, ACT says National's plan is better but doesn’t even touch the real issue,” according to ACT Deputy Leader and Housing spokesperson Brooke van Velden.

They should save taxpayers’ money, ACT is going to scrap it and implement a property-rights based resource management system instead,” says ACT’s Environment spokesperson Simon Court.
