Simon Bridges defends tax-funded travel bill

From Morning Report, 6:10 am on 14 August 2018

Opposition leader Simon Bridges is defending the large travel bill he racked up and doesn't think his caucus colleagues are to blame for it leaking to the media. Mr Bridges stands by the roughly $84,000 he clocked up travelling around the country in a Crown limousine between April and June. He says getting out and about the country is a crucial part of the job and suggested the government would be wise to do more of it.
