Our commitment is to accept the scientific method as the best tool to understand the world around us and to determine positions and act according to evidence, merit and best practice, not partisan ideology nor vested interest.
In policy formation, as in all else, we will act honestly and ethically, admit when we get it wrong and tell the truth, always.
We use the best available research and information to guide decisions at all stages of the policy process. We are focussed on long and short term solutions to the nation’s most pressing problems.
Our policies set out the principles we will follow in our work the Parliament.
Members, working together, drive our policy development processes. They participate at all stages and have an equal say in policy approval. Our policies are always subject to review.
