The Ministry of Education receives about $13 billion of funding annually. There is scope within this to target additional facilities where required. We need better advocacy from local MPs to make this happen. Schools would be more relieved if teachers were freed from administration and assessment and could do what they love - teach.

With the General Elections on our doorsteps, Wellingtonians will have the chance to decide who will represent their electorate for the next three years. The Independent Herald will introduce the candidates running for Ohariu and Wellington Central. We will ask them all the same three questions, plus one personalised question.

1. Recent reports from the Ministry of Education show that Wellington schools struggle with overcrowded classrooms. How could schools be relieved?

I chair a Business Improvement District, initiated by Wellington City Council. This programme could be enhanced with government support. It encourages businesses to work together and promote their area better.

retaining them for trains. Many of those who turned up to the Kilbirnie meeting were eastern suburbs residents who did not have the option of catching a train. The proposal provoked accusations Greater Wellington was promoting rail use above bus. Public Transport Planning manager Paul Kos, who gave the presentation, was forced to apologise for any confusion the “misleading” information made about changes to bus fares. The Council planned to scrap monthly bus passes as their value would reduce once a new network was established and

The key to keep the Eastern Suburbs moving is a second tunnel and link across the Basin to the motorway, and two lanes each way to the airport. This needs to be a joint effort between councillors and local MPs. We have suffered from a lack of leadership, cost cutting and

4. What is the main reason the Conservative Party seeks to get into Parliament now that its founder Colin Craig no longer leads it?

The Conservative Party is a voice for families and traditional values in the midst of the liberalisation of our society. Like any other party it is more than one person and continues on building and growing. We need people governing us who put their self-interests aside and work for and with the people of New Zealand.

Snapper was extended. He said free bus transfers would provide cheaper fares for most and the cost impact would be limited. However a woman in the audience told him it was “unacceptable” she would have to pay $45 more per month to travel from Miramar to the CBD than a rail passenger covering a much greater distance. Kos said that travelling by rail was a “different type of market” that might require driving or walking to stations as well as multiple transfers, however his repeated attempts at explaining that were met with derision.

He said the rail passes were necessary to discourage fare evasion, which was still a big issue with 10-trip tickets. Wellington city councillor Sarah Free, who sits on the regional transport committee, told the audience the council would put in a “very strong submission” expressing its concern about the proposal. The proposals also include a 25 percent discount on off-peak bus and train fares, while the blind, disabled and full-time tertiary students would get an all-day 25 percent discount.

3. Wellington’s infrastructure struggles to keep up with the population growth. What do you propose to improve traffic and public transport issues?

deferred decisions on transport infrastructure so that we are now 30 years behind in our transport network. Light rail would further congest our narrow roads. We should be looking at new and innovative technologies like skycabs (elevated transport).

Also our policy on financial transaction tax would be a huge benefit by removing a pile of paperwork from SMEs [Small and Medium Enterprises]. A 0.5 percent tax on every bank transaction could replace GST and maybe income tax and can be collected electronically at source.
