Sur­vey of peo­ple’s lives helps MP

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Ohariu-based Labour List MP Charles Chau­vel is is­su­ing a sur­vey to ev­ery per­son on the Ohariu elec­torate roll, to see if peo­ple are find­ing life tough.

‘‘Last month I con­ducted a sur­vey at su­per­mar­kets, malls and house­holds about the ris­ing cost of liv­ing. The re­sults of that sur­vey were sober­ing and con­firmed my feel­ings that, like oth­ers across New Zealand, peo­ple in the [Welling­ton] north­ern sub­urbs are feel­ing the bite of ris­ing prices,’’ he said.

Mr Chau­vel says he wants to hear about other chal­lenges peo­ple and fam­i­lies are fac­ing.

‘‘This year’s New Zealand cen­sus was post­poned af­ter the Christchurch earth­quake in Fe­bru­ary. It will now be held in 2013. This cen­sus is an op­por­tu­nity for me to re­ceive in­for­ma­tion that should help me do my job bet­ter as a Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment’’.
