from Chris Luxon
Yesterday I announced that if elected on October 14, a National government will go to work immediately implementing our 100 Day Action Plan.
We have drawn up this 100 Day Action Plan to get started on rebuilding the economy, delivering tax relief, restoring law and order, and delivering better health, education, housing and infrastructure.
We will get started on a big Parliamentary agenda by introducing legislation to:
- Remove the Auckland Regional Fuel Tax which adds 11.5 cents per litre of petrol.
- Remove the Reserve Bank’s dual mandate to get the Bank focused on putting the lid back on inflation.
- Restore 90-day employment trial periods for all businesses.
- Extend free breast cancer screening for women aged up to 74.
- Repeal Labour’s Three Waters legislation.
- Repeal Labour’s RMA 2.0 laws.
- Ban gang patches, stop gang members gathering in public, and stop known gang offenders from communicating with one another.
- Give police greater powers to search gang members for firearms and make gang membership an aggravating factor at sentencing.
- Stop taxpayer funding for cultural reports which can be used for weakening sentences for offenders.
- Extend the eligibility for remand prisoners to access rehabilitation programmes.
- Crack down on serious youth offending.
- Encourage more virtual participation in court proceedings.
In our first 100 days we’ll also cancel Labour’s planned fuel tax hikes, repeal the Ute Tax, stop work on the Jobs Tax, instruct public sector Chief Executives to start identifying back-office savings and report their spending on consultants, ban cellphones in schools, require primary and intermediate schools to prepare to teach an hour a day each of reading, writing and maths, stop Labour’s blanket speed limit reductions, stop work on the Lake Onslow scheme, introduce a fast-track consenting regime and establish a Priority One category on the social housing waitlist to more quickly move families out of emergency housing and into permanent homes.
Early voting is open and New Zealanders have a clear choice about the future they want.
