New Conservative values, and will protect, our New Zealand culture, heritage and identity. While some aspects of who we are and what we do may just seem like tradition, their reason for being must be seriously considered before changes are made through legislation. These may be difficult to quantify in dollar terms, and we must be careful not to simply let the prospect of more dollars as a result of change become of greater value.
New Conservative is opposed to trading on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We believe that families can benefit greatly from the few days there are each year when there is no requirement to work, and Easter trading simply takes one of these opportunities away.
New Conservative is the only Party prepared to state a policy on this.
