At its 25th birthday convention on the weekend, The NZ First Party passed a remit calling for a test for new arrivals, requiring that they understood NZ values.
The Respecting New Zealand Values Bill would require refugees and migrants to sit a test showing they understood what it means to be a Kiwi. One delegate, Roger Melville from Wairarapa, said he was keen on it because the country has been filling with people “who aren’t really New Zealanders”.
