Tax group chair Sir Michael Cullen still being paid $1000 a day

From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 8 March 2019

Sir Michael Cullen is assuring taxpayers he won't be working more than two days this month. The Government's under fire from the National Party after it was revealed the Tax Working Group chair is still being paid even after the group's report was released. Sir Michaels's fee is $1000 for each 6 hour day he works. In comparison, the chair of the 2010 National Government's Tax Working group says he did the job for free. The row flared in Parliament on Thursday, as Matthew Theunissen reports.
