National Committed To War On Terrorism
12 November 2001
National is absolutely committed to New Zealand troops supporting our friends and allies in the war against terrorism in Afghanistan, Opposition Leader Bill English said today.
"It is Prime Minister Clark who has a real problem on her hands maintaining total Government support for the war. It's her job to secure that support and she cannot take National's support for granted on issues her Government can't handle when the going gets tough.
"I am not going to spend the next 12 months acting as a de facto coalition partner to Helen Clark when her Government is divided," Mr English said.
