Oil, gas changes: Jones labels Bridges 'Chicken Licken'

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 13 April 2018

Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones says he expects more than $100 million of the regional development fund to end up in Taranaki over the next three-years to help the region's economy transition away from a reliance on fossil fuels. He also labelled Simon Bridges the "Chicken Licken" of climate change and said the government is ultimately responding to what the People of New Zealand want by banning offshore oil exploration.
