“The opportunities for learning are enormous. Access to fast internet will help connect our local schools with the world and prepare students for living and working in the 21st century.

“National’s is spending $1.3 billion on ultra-fast broadband. By July next year, nearly 100,000 students at 221 schools around the country will be connected. Our commitment means no school will miss out once the roll-out is complete.

“Broadband is a key part of National’s plan to build a stronger economy, lift wages, and provide the world-class health and education services families need.

“National is delivering on its promise to bring ultra-fast broadband to 75 per cent of New Zealanders where they live, work, and study.”

Over the next five years, 97 per cent of New Zealand schools will receive ultra-fast fibre enabling speeds of 100 Mbps.

The remaining 3 per cent of schools, which are in the most remote locations, will receive a high-speed wireless or satellite connection.

Sam talks about the Rugby World Cup - he attended the opening - and says the opening was "up there with the Olympics". Sam's been up to a great deal in the electorate and he talks about a bit of that - and what's coming next. The Parliamentary Rugby World Cup has also just finished up and Sam was a member of the winning side. He then talks about the Pacific Islands Forum, held in Auckland over the week leading up to RWC2011.

The Government is adopting a multi-pronged approach by cracking down on precursors, breaking the supply chain, providing improved access to treatment, supporting families, and strengthening leadership and accountability. I had the opportunity to see the destruction firsthand with the Prime Minister and witness the on-going relief efforts of our Government and the fundraising efforts of many generous New Zealanders.

Don’t worry if you’ve missed one our local meetings – you can still have your say on how the new council will be set up and run through the select committee process. I recently held community meetings in Onehunga, Ellerslie and Panmure with the Associate Minister for Local Government, the Hon. John Carter. The current council structures are failing to deliver in an efficient and consistent way the level of services we all require.
