Phil Goff: Labour is opposed to reversing the repeal of Section 59

June 9, 2009

We have received a letter from Phil Goff, which was released from his office for publication on our web site.  In it, he clearly states:

Labour is opposed to reversing the repeal of Section 59 of the Crimes Act.  We believe that the law is working as intended and has not resulted in any criminal sanctions against good parents who do not harm their children.

We look forward to the other parties stating their position with such clarity.
