Pre-Election Promises Not Matched By Record

NOT MATCHED BY RECORD
New Zealand First has described
Labour’s rural health policy as a cynical attempt to woo
provincial New Zealand.
Rural spokesperson, Ian Walker,
says people will remember that Helen Clark closed down 29
hospitals between 1984 - 1990.
“Rural voters should not be
fooled by what Labour says now, but should remember what
happened the last time Labour was in charge of the health
system. There still seems to be no genuine desire from
Labour to fix a worsening problem,” said rural spokesperson
“New Zealand First is committed to equity of
access to health care for all New Zealanders. Rather than
getting involved in the costly business of changing delivery
structures there needs to be a change in policy
“New Zealand First will make equity of access
to health services in rural areas a key principle of its
health policy, being released soon”.
