Petition of Thomas Lea-Humphreys: Do a New Zealand-made and owned business campaign and web register right away

Published date: 4 May 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives urge the Government to spend $25-50 million on a New Zealand-owned and made campaign and web register to support small and medium-sized businesses that are New Zealand-owned and operated.

Petition reason

I believe that during the Covid-19 crisis we have an opportunity to encourage a bigger proportion of consumer and business spending to go into smaller businesses. This will support jobs, incomes and keep money flowing during this difficult economic period. At the same time, the media will also get a boost from the Government’s advertising.
