Coromandel MP Makes Top 10
Written by Ayana Piper-Healion on May 29, 2020
Our first chat this morning to Coromandel MP Scott Simpson since his promotion to front bench in new Todd Muller lead National Party.
Simpson continues to hold the Environment and Climate Change portfolios, with the addition of the Resource Management Act Reform and Planning portfolio.
Calling from Wellington Airport after Parliament sat until midnight under urgency, Simpson was ready to come home, but was still excited to tell us about extra money secured for drought relief.
“I’m absolutely sure and convinced, that if COVID hadn’t been upon us, drought and dry weather would have been the dominating conversation of public debate around the nation,” said Simpson.
