Amalgamated Workers' Union Northern National Secretary Maurice Davis tells Lynn Freeman he wants an inquiry into PPP's (Public Private Partnerships) procurement process, suggesting there should be a single desk procurement agency in place.

This follows concerns about Transmission Gully's cost blow out, its members' recent wait to get back to work on the billion dollar twenty-seven km stretch of motorway north of Wellington, NZ's biggest ever PPP, which has been troubled by contractors leaving before lock-down, and whose completion date is as yet unclear.
