Shambolic and chaotic: Simeon Brown on Wood's resignation

From Morning Report, 6:43 am on 22 June 2023

Mindboggling .. Disappointing and confusing ... are just some of the reactions from politicians to the resignation of Michael Wood from all his remaining cabinet portfolios.

Michael Wood had already been stood down from his transport role after revelations he owned shares in Auckland Airport.

Yesterday it was revealed he'd also failed to declare shares in Chorus, Spark, and the National Australia Bank.

Mr Wood had been involved in decisions directly relating to those businesses in the past year.

Ingrid Hipkiss got the reaction of National Party public service spokesperson Simeon Brown.
