The Labour party clearly don’t understand that there is something called Google…which enables people to search the internet for things.
Like announcements made last year which are the same as the announcements made this year.
This is what they had to say in June 2014:
The Labour Party says if elected to government it will entice immigrants away from Auckland by increasing incentives for them to accept jobs or establish businesses in regional New Zealand.
Labour also says it will manage inward migration to reduce peaks and troughs in net migration, thereby taking pressure off an overheating housing market.
“Around half of permanent arrivals to New Zealand move to the Auckland region. If our policies were based on the development of some of our most promising regions this could be a trigger for attracting some migrants to these centres,” the policy statement says.
“This approach holds greater promise if a particular industry or types of industries were clustered in a region for the recruitment of highly skilled migrants and businesses specifically for that region. In this way immigration can be a critical input into regional development and a brake on growing our cities even bigger.”
Labour says over time new industries could be located in provincial centres, and existing industries there could be supported by smarter immigration and investment policies.
