Bridges stamps his mark at National Party conference

From Morning Report, 6:41 am on 30 July 2018

It's all about education for Simon Bridges as he looks to stamp his mark as the National Party leader. Mr Bridges has revived an old Labour Party policy to reduce class sizes in primary schools - however it'll be another two years before there are any specific details. His announcement also harks back to one of the biggest embarassments for the John Key government, a forced back down in 2012 over a policy change under National that would have led to larger class sizes. RNZ political reporter Jo Moir was in Auckland for the first conference National's held since it lost power.
