Na­tional Stan­dards

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


I note with in­ter­est that our city coun­cil has de­cided to take a po­si­tion on the Na­tional Stan­dards is­sue.

I sus­pect there will be quite a few peo­ple in the com­mu­nity with views on both sides of this de­bate who will ques­tion the coun­cil’s man­date for con­sid­er­a­tion of is­sues such as this.

And there will be oth­ers who will ar­gue that if the coun­cil wants to have a pol­icy on Na­tional Stan­dards, then per­haps they ought to con­sult rather more widely with the com­mu­nity be­fore de­vel­op­ing a po­si­tion on the sub­ject.

I un­der­stand their con­sul­ta­tion to date has been limited to hear­ing one dep­u­ta­tion to their most re­cent coun­cil meet­ing. - JOHN BURKE,
