Our Key Areas of Interest
Grey Power believes New Zealand superannuation should be a state, tax funded scheme payable at the age of 65 years, that allows the retired person an adequate income to live in reasonable comfort and dignity and be able to participate fully in the community. That superannuation should be accepted as an entitlement and not means tested. This income should include a special provision to provide for the needs of the person living alone. A multi-party Superannuation Accord should secure the scheme.
Grey Power believes in a Public Health System that protects and promotes the health of New Zealanders. Grey Power will strive to have a Parliamentary Accord on Health that interprets the declared will of the majority of citizens of New Zealand and not a system that reflects the aspirations of any current government.
Grey Power believes energy (electricity, gas, solid and liquid fuel) should be produced, delivered and used in the most effective ways possible and at a cost that is affordable to the domestic consumer. Energy supplies should, as far as possible, be reliable and secure, and energy prices stable, undistorted and at a level that reflects their strategic importance to New Zealand.
Grey Power believes all persons in New Zealand should have access to and be accurately informed of all entitlements, initiatives or changes that affect them. Equal opportunity must exist in all areas of Social Services to ensure a fair and equitable standard of living for all.
