Our nuclear-free moment? Or business as usual?


 

Energy and Resources Minister Megan Woods will today travel to Taranaki to talk to those affected by her Government’s oil and gas decision.

 

The Government’s messages have been either contradictory or dishonest.

 

“The Government is talking out both sides of its mouth”, says ACT Leader David Seymour.

 

“On the one hand, we have Jacinda Ardern selling this decision in London and Paris as her generation’s ‘nuclear-free moment’.

 

“But on the other, Megan Woods is trying to assure industry that it is business as usual. ‘Nothing’s changed’, she said this weekend.

 

“Which is it? The Government is being dishonest with New Zealanders. It cannot have it both ways”, says Mr Seymour.
