Maiden Speech – Lesley Soper MP

Speech To The House
Wednesday 6 April 2005

Tena Kotou, Tena Kotou, Tena Kotou Katoa

Warm greetings to all my parliamentary colleagues and to my family and friends here today. I stand here as a proud Southern woman, a feminist, a socialist and a trade unionist, committed to Labour Principles and values, to Te Tiriti o Waitangi as a covenant between two peoples; to the causes I believe in; a New Zealand which is strong, fair-minded, inclusive, proud of itself and its place in the world.
