Peter Dunne Sells NZ Out To Foreign Corporations

It’s no secret that one of the best New Zealand First contributions so far this term has been Fletcher Tabuteau’s Fighting Foreign Corporate Control bill.

In it, we sought to strike back against one of the WORST elements of the TPPA, by preventing Investor-State Dispute resolutions from taking away our sovereignty. Our bill would have protected New Zealand from the very real threat of foreign corporates riding roughshod over Parliament’s law-making ability in pursuit of profits; and also helped to ensure PHARMAC’s vital role in providing Kiwis with affordable medicine would have been safeguarded.
