Crucial Portfolios for a Green Member of Parliament

Posted by

Steffan Browning, NZ Parliamentary member for the Green Party. These are his Portfolios.

Notice that they are critical to the web of life, the biosphere and our common future. If given these crucial portfolios in a world that is plundering and corrupting the natural environment - what would you do?

If you were elected to Parliament how would you handle these portfolios that Steffan has?

Spare a thought for this man, who is doing his best with portfolios that are all under intense pressure!

Current parliamentary roles:

  • Member, Primary Production Committee
  • Spokesperson, Agriculture
  • Spokesperson, Biosecurity and Customs
  • Spokesperson, Fisheries
  • Spokesperson, Forestry
  • Spokesperson, Genetic Engineering and stopping it at our borders.
  • Spokesperson, Organics
  • Spokesperson, Security and Intelligence

May The Force Be With Him!

1st June 2016, I have just received a phone call from Steffan as he was driving back to Parliament. He said that he no longer has all of these portfolios, having to give away in particular Security & Intelligence. This was one where he was really focused and effective.
