Foreign personnel. --Conor Fallon (talk) 23:55, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Do you actually see this as important enough? BlakJakNZ (talk) 20:17, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Outdated Page[edit]

This page is completely outdated. It claims that the New Zealand National party is the "main opposition" of the government. I suggest it be updated, considering the National Party is now in power. DonutGuy (talk) 20:41, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Organisation History[edit]

Would it be better to keep this under this article or separate it into its own? What are peoples thoughts? NealeFamily (talk) 07:33, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

I'd suggest a new article Nick-D (talk) 10:24, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
