New Zealand should be the fairest, most decent society in the world. And we can get there together by focussing on the positive things that really matter to Kiwi families. Labour will put people first. We’ll make sure there are more affordable homes, that there are more secure jobs with higher wages, and that our kids get the best start.


Our values

  • Family

    We’ll make sure all Kiwi kids get the best start in life. Our policies will give parents more time to be parents and will empower young people to succeed at school and out in our communities.

    Everyone should have the chance to own their own home but home ownership rates are the lowest they’ve been in 50 years. We’ll restore this Kiwi dream by making home ownership and rent more affordable.

  • Andrew Little Speech to Committee for Auckland — September 30th 2015

    Introduction – A better future for Auckland

    Tena Koutou Katoa.

    Thank you so much for the invitation to speak to you this afternoon.


    When I was living in Auckland in the 1990’s, the most common phrase I heard when talking about the city and its issues at the time was “if only they had done this 30 years ago, or forty years ago, or fifty years ago.”

    Auckland is a city with a history of putting things off and playing constant catch up.

    That suggests a city not confident about its place or its future.

    But that’s not Auckland now.

  • Andrew Little: Speech to Cullen Breakfast

    Section One – Andrew’s Approach

    Tēnā Koutou Katoa.

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to address you this morning.

    These breakfasts are an important meeting place for leaders and thinkers in modern New Zealand. It’s a real honour to speak today.

    I want to give you an idea of the direction of the Government I will lead, and the type of Prime Minister I hope to be.

    It won’t surprise you that I think we need to make big changes to the direction of our country.

    Some of the most basic aspirations that New Zealanders hold are becoming harder to achieve.

    New Zealanders don’t ask the world. But we do have high hopes for our families, and there are some things we see defining our unique place in the world.

    Most of all, what Kiwis want is a chance to work hard and build a secure future for ourselves and our families.

    That’s what my parents were able to do.
