National Party Leader John Key today announced the confidence and supply agreement negotiated with the United Future Party.

“I am pleased National has been able to negotiate constructively with United Future Leader Peter Dunne to help form the strong, stable government that New Zealand needs,” says Mr Key.

“The agreement gives the new National-led Government confidence and supply support throughout this term.

“United Future has agreed to support the legislation required to give effect to the policies contained in National’s Post-Election Action Plan.”

The agreement provides that Mr Dunne be appointed Minister of Revenue, Associate Minister of Health and Associate Minister of Conservation. He will be a Minister outside Cabinet.

“In addition, National has agreed to support a range of principles, policies and priorities that have been put forward by United Future. The details are outlined in the confidence and supply agreement.
