The New Zealand Medical Students’ Association (NZMSA) and Te Oranga have made a joint submission to the Finance and Expenditure Committee regarding Budget 2018. NZMSA seeks to ensure provisions are afforded for in Budget 2018 to ensure the government meets its EFTS cap promises.

NZMSA and Te Oranga have reviewed the Budget Policy Statement, and are concerned there is no mention of the EFTS cap policy, or costings for its removal. NZMSA and Te Oranga has requested to send a representative to the select committee to provide feedback on the budget and hold the government accountable for the EFTS caps promises made in the election.
