NZTU Debates

The Taxpayers’ Union is hosting a series of debates in the run up to this year’s election. 

The series will include debates in key electorates and debates on parties’ policies. They will give candidates and parties a great opportunity to set out their stall to voters in advance of the election. 

These debates will be moderated by the hosts of The Working Group podcast, Martyn Bradbury and Damien Grant. The debates will be streamed live on the Taxpayers’ Union website (www.taxpayers.org.nz), The Daily Blog (www.thedailyblog.co.nz), YouTube, Facebook, and Freeview Channel 200.
