The Conservative Party fully supports Sensible Sentencing Trust’s call for Police and Corrections to have the authority to drug test offenders on Probation, Home Detention, and Bail.

“It seems bizarre that convicted criminals, with drug histories, are allowed on the streets with no way of monitoring their drug use. We call on the government to alter the existing law, under urgency,” says Party Spokesman, Leighton Baker.

What is both alarming, and tragic, is...

The Conservative Party believes we have dropped the ball in leading the world in the area of protecting the vulnerable from exploitation and abuse. While countries like Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Northern Ireland, Canada and now France, have introduced the same legislation we had the opportunity to introduce in 2003, our most vulnerable continue to suffer at the hands of their oppressors. Parliament is doing nothing, and Local Bodies can do nothing.

Whilst the Conservative Party are pleased to see that CYF are looking to make many changes in an attempt to address serious issues that were highlighted in a report conducted last year, there are still major concerns regarding the huge lack of accountability for CYF.
 
The Conservative Party believes that until there is an Independent CYF Complaints Authority formed to hold CYF accountable, attitudes and approaches by those within the Department will not change, which in tu...

The Conservative Party's number one policy is Binding Referenda.  We applaud the fact that an issue as important as our National Flag was put to the people to vote on via a referendum.
 
However, the Conservative Party totally disagrees with the process in which it was done, and the unnecessary financial costs involved.
 
"Imagine how much money could have been saved and put into important sectors such as health and education, if the first refer...

The Conservative Party is pleased to see that the 1080 blackmailer has been held to account for his actions. We read:

"It's hard to imagine a worse threat to children and families," said Fonterra’s Managing Director of People, Culture and Safety Maury Leyland. "It can't be forgotten [the letter] was accompanied by deadly quantities of 1080."

“It is time the Government was also held to account with regards to its sanctioning of the widespread use of this deadl...

As reported recently, and on numerous occasions, burglaries and crime are at unacceptable levels. Sadly, many youth and young people are becoming more and more actively involved in committing criminal offences, and the Conservative Party is concerned that lack of consequences for actions is only feeding the problem.
 
"There is no real incentive for youth to not commit crimes," says Party Spokesman Leighton Baker.  Recently, the Conservative Party was notified abo...

THANK YOU from Colin
10 November 2014

Thank you for all your support in the 2014 Election Campaign.

Election night was a night of mixed emotions for us all. So much hard work, and a much improved result, This of course was disappointing, but represents a new challenge as we look forward to making it into Parliament in 2017.

Our support grew by nearly 50% a higher growth rate than any other party, and deservedly so given the tremendous hard work and effort put into the Campaign. We contributed to the debates and gave voters a real alternative to the same old thing. I know how very hard our team worked across the country.

As a Party that is less than 3 years old we are continuing to grow and thrive and the future looks very good indeed. The 2017 plan is already underway and I will update you further on this in the next few weeks. In the meantime thank you to all our hard working volunteers, please take the time to rest and recuperate.

Your support is invaluable and we look forward to more positive things to come.

The Head Office has relocated back to 5 Triton Drive, the postal address, phone numbers and emails remain unchanged. Please do email to make appointments, rather than just drop in, as volunteers are staffing the office and it is not always open.

Thank you again for your ongoing support and the many hundreds of encouraging emails that have been coming in. Both Helen and I appreciate you all.

I look forward to catching up soon.
Kindest Regards
Colin Craig

THANK YOU from Christine
24 September 2014

I want to start by saying a big thank you to our faithful members and supporters. We so appreciate everything you have done in support of the Party in the lead up to our 2014 campaign. We do need to see this as fantastic progress and be encouraged by the fact that we will be there next time without fail.

We have learned so much, and at just three years old, the future for us is bright. Our Country still needs us and we still need you behind us.

We came so close at 4.1%, and yes, it was very disappointing that we didn't make it through on Saturday evening, however, we have grown to over 8500 members and supporters and we are still the fastest growing party in the country.

Your support is invaluable and we look forward to more positive things to come.

Yours sincerely
