OPINION: It will be interesting to see if the Government, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern claimed on election night would govern for every New Zealander, will make much needed changes to its freshwater rules after recent feedback.
Opposition Leader Simon Bridges says it also supports the extended economic package for all businesses.
“This is an unprecedented situation and we support any measures that will protect the health and safety of New Zealanders.
“I understand that this will be a worrying and stressful time for New Zealanders. I encourage everyone to stay calm and follow the rules that are now in place.
“We will work in a supportive and constructive way with the Government in the interests of bringing New Zealand through this crisis together.”
National has offered the Government the services of its MPs and staff to assist.
