Greens Voting Record On GE Deserves Scrutiny - Donnelly
NZ First MP, Brian Donnelly is calling on commentators to examine closely the ‘Greens’ voting record on GE and cloning issues.
The Greens voted against the introduction of legislation to ban human cloning in New Zealand.
The Greens have voted for on-going funding of GE field trials on three occasions.
The Greens refused to vote at all on legislation which tightened up the regulations on field trials.
The Greens refused to vote at all on legislation which imposed a statutory moratorium on applications for commercial release of GE materials.
“If the Greens had had their way, we could have had 20 Winston Peters or 100 copies of Nandor Tanczos,” said Mr Donnelly.
“No matter how you look at it, the Greens’ behaviour in the House doesn’t make any sense” concluded Mr Donnelly.
