Labour Makes More Policy Announcements
You might not have noticed, but the Labour Party has been trying to let us know that they will get the real economy going with Government encouragement when they get back into power - this time with incentives to boost forestry processing and production. These policies are well overdue, as the wharves around the country are stacked high with raw logs destined for China and taking our badly needed processing jobs with them.
In Northland, we are waiting to get a commitment for the rail link to North Port at Marsden Point that will take hundreds of logging trucks off the roads which are slowing traffic down and breaking up the tar seal.
