McVicar Welcomes ASA Decision

McVicar Welcomes ASA Decision.
Napier Conservative Party Candidate Garth McVicar welcomes the Advertising Standards Authority’s decision to not uphold the pamphlet complaint of Robert Johnson, Campaign Manager for Napier Labour candidate Stuart Nash. The ASA acknowledged that one complaint was a genuine error, that has been amended and considered “settled” by the ASA, and the other two complaints not upheld.
McVicar states, “It is important that the people of Napier know that Napier Labour Candidate Stuart Nash refused to vote to amend the anti-smacking law when he had the opportunity. Over 90% of Napier voters voted against the anti- smacking law in the referendum and yet Mr. Nash ignored them and chose to follow his party instead of representing the voters of Napier.”
McVicar believes a local MP should put the wishes of the electorate they represent first, and knows the Conservative Party backs this. ENDS
