NZCPR Weekly: A New Parliament and the Labelling of Food

Dear NZCPR Reader,   

Since this week’s newsletter is going out as the voting booths for the 2017 General Election are closing, we firstly outline what needs to happen before Parliament is up and running again, and then we look into a bill that is in front of a Select Committee that deals with the complex issue of food labelling, our NZCPR Guest Commentator Alan Emerson outlines the case for compulsory country of origin labelling for food, and this week’s poll asks whether you would prefer the voluntary food labelling system that is presently in place to remain, or whether it should be replaced with a mandatory system.

Next week we will look into the election result and what it means for New Zealand.
