Labour not ruling out TPP support until full document is revealed.

Labour leader Andrew Little told TV One’s Q+A programme that none of the bottom lines marked out by Labour have been met in the TPP including the right for future Government’s to ban the sale of land to foreign buyers.

However they aren’t ruling out support for the document until they look at the final deal.

“We are opposed to what we see at the moment but we’re taking a reasonable and measured approach, there’s a lot of complexity to it,” Mr Little said.

When asked by Michael Parkin about the foreign-buyers issue, “Grant Robertson suggested you may flout those restrictions and still impose a ban. You’d do that?”

Mr Little responded with this “yes. We will. It comes down to this in the end – that the fundamental moral obligation of every government is to act in the best interest of its citizens.”
