New Zealand Parliament Pāremata Aotearoa

Petition of Terry Waite: Inquiry into the Government’s treatment of farmers

Published date: 29 Apr 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives conduct an inquiry into whether legislative and regulatory changes introduced by the Government have negatively affected farmers.

Petition reason

I believe the New Zealand Government has treated our primary producers with disrespect through legislative and regulatory changes. Our farmers are our backbone and I feel this ungracious treatment has left many feeling depressed and suicidal, along with huge costs and time wasted with complying with nonsense changes that achieve very little.
