National Party conference kicks off


Hordes of National Party donors and paid-up supporters will converge on Auckland today for its annual conference.

And some new policies are expected to be revealed.

Deputy leader and Finance Minister Bill English will speak today, focusing on the turbulent economic times.

"It will just be further steps in the Government's programme. We pride ourselves on being a relatively predictable Government, so it'll be focussed on the issues that matter."

Prime Minister John Key will give his key-note speech tomorrow.
