Greens remove natural health products portfolio from Steffan Browning
The Green Party caucus has today removed the Natural Health Products portfolio from Steffan Browning and merged it into the Health portfolio held by Kevin Hague.
“The Green Party supports evidence based health policy. Caucus has decided that our health policy is best represented in full by Kevin Hague,” said Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei.
“We wish to be very clear that we support the use of science and evidence when it comes to public health policy.
“Individuals can make choices about their own health treatments, but it is critical public health decisions are evidence based and that consumers have appropriate evidence based information about alternative health products.”
