Investigation into awarding govt contracts will be transparent

From First Up, 5:47 am on 22 September 2022

Time to hear from Grant Robertson, who with Jacinda Ardern at the UN General Assembly in New York, is the Acting Prime Minister. We began with an issue that's seen the government under fire from opponents -- awarding government contracts to the husband of Foreign Affairs Minister Nanaia Mahuta. The Public Service Commissioner Peter Hughes announced yesterday he will conduct a review after details emerged of contracts awarded to companies owned by or related to her husband, Gannin Ormsby. Nathan Rarere asked Mr Robertson if the way that government contracts have been awarded has been appropriate.
