Social Services and Employment Minister Steve Maharey is paying tribute to Ministry of Social Policy Chief Executive Margaret Bazley whose retirement from the public service was announced today.

"The Government wants to place on record its appreciation for Dame Margaret's dedication and hard work within the public service for more than 40 years.

"As Minister of Social Services and Employment, and the current Minister to whom Dame Margaret reports, it falls to me to formally thank her for the significant contribution she has made to public administration in New Zealand.
