Baldock tells Govt: don't stall on public access law
United Future's Larry Baldock today urged the Government to press on with the proposed public access bill before the election.
"United Future is confident the basics in the Bill are fair and reasonable and any further fine-tuning can occur during the select committee stage," Mr Baldock said. "That is why submissions are called for.
"After this lengthy process has finally arrived at some decent proposals, now is not the time to get cold feet because of a misinformation campaign launched by an ACT party desperate for votes.
"We have always said that we would support a reasonable solution. Now its up to the Government."
Last week United Future slammed the Government for a growing list of issues that it is putting into the 'too hard' basket as the election approaches.
"This is yet another one. How about some real leadership from Labour?" Mr Baldock said.
