MPs give mixed response to super city idea

Aug 22nd, 2014 | By | Category: Radio News

THE idea of amalgamating Wellington’s local councils received a mixed response from local MPs debating the issue at Massey University  this week.


The debate hosted by the Wellington Employers Chamber of Commerce  gave locals a chance to question the MPs on the future progress of the region.


Ohariu MP Peter Dunne says he believes Wellington’s size is a disadvantage, and combining councils would give it a greater ability to compete economically with Auckland.


However Wellington Central MP Grant Robertson warned against forcing any decision on the public.
