members to decide whether or not to prosecute the residents

I am acutely embarrassed by the actions

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
