National Radio Midday Bulletin - First Half

IRD BOSS: The Head of the IRD Graeme Holland is leaving the public service when his contract expires in four months. He has been commissioner for five years and has dealt with the Winebox and an inquiry into the department. It is a $260,000 per year job and there is speculation Holland will now be employed as a tax consultant.

ELECTORAL: The Chief Electoral Office says taxpayers will fund the Tauranga re-count which began at 11am this morning. It is expected to cost about $3,000.

LABOUR: Labour has conceded the Rangitikei electorate despite over 100 votes going missing in the seat.

GREENS: The Greens have appointed a musterer instead of a whip to organise the party – Ian Ewen-Street an organic farmer who has mustering experience.

JETS: Former Defence Minister Max Bradford says if the government backs out of the F-16 deal it will badly tarnish our defence reputation with the US and Australia.

BENTLEY: Police working on the Kirsty Bentley murder have released fresh information about a Commer van and three young Maori men in Kirsty’s neighbourhood.

Midday bulletin was interrupted by a phone call and Scoop apologises for that.
