Green MPs reshuffle policy
The Green Party Caucus has today reallocated its policy portfolios amongst its six MPs for the coming parliamentary term.
Co-Leader Rod Donald says that there has been some reshuffling, as well as the reallocation of responsibilities previously covered by departed MPs.
"While all MPs have an increased workload, second-term MP Metiria Turei has picked up significant new responsibilities, including Justice, Conservation and Biosecurity," Mr Donald says.
