Govt 'digesting' unreleased report on Maori Health Authority

From Morning Report, 8:15 am on 19 June 2023

The National Party is accusing the government of hiding the results of a review of the Maori Health Authority, Te Aka Whai Ora.

Health Minister Ayesha Verrall received the report six weeks ago and says she's still digesting the findings.

She won't say exactly when it will be released, and she declined our request for an interview.

National's health spokesperson Shane Reti tried to access the report through the Official Information Act, but his request was denied.

He spoke to Morning Report.
