Regional Views Represented in Wellington Policy Development
Ministerial advisory groups and Working Groups should include regional representation. They shouldn't be just filled with Wellington people or people who don't understand the views of people in the South Island. Everyone has the right to be represented and have access to the discussion - all parts of the country should be heard.
Why the contribution is important
Because the issues that are important to people in the South are different to those in the North. A regional perspective and regional issues are not always included in important government policy developments or think tanks - they are inequitable.
