Dr Duncan Webb

MP for Christchurch Central

Duncan Webb brings broad experience to Parliament. He was a partner in a major law firm, and prior to that a professor of law. His credentials as a social activist are unquestionable – since 2010 he worked to help ordinary people in Christchurch get their homes, lives, jobs, and businesses back on track after the earthquakes.  He was an advocate for an inquiry into the failings of EQC.

Duncan has also worked on other social justice projects, such as the Public Interest Project — which seeks to get innocent people out of jail and establish a Criminal Cases Review Commission — and the Howard League, which promotes prisoners’ rights. Furthermore, Duncan acted for the Flockton Basin residents in the EQC flood litigation and assisted the Problem Gambling Foundation when they sued Sky City.

As the new Member of Parliament for Christchurch Central, Duncan will continue to work with his constituents on the many issues which continue to face them. He is committed to being a a strong voice for Christchurch in Wellington.

Duncan is proud to be part of a Government which is implementing polices of change – including some directly advocated by him.
