Phil Goff speaking at Oz Kiwi Sydney meeting
28 July 2016
We often hear people blaming the Helen Clark Labour Government for the 2001 changes to the Social Security Act (Cth). Having met with Phil Goff, Andrew Little and Chris Seed, the New Zealand High Commissioner in Canberra, and subsequently in Sydney, we can assure you that the 2001 change was a unilateral decision by the Howard Government.
Phil Goff explains it himself in this video filmed in November 2015.
