National Supports Changes To MPs Pay
17 April 2002
National strongly supports proposals to
bring the tax treatment of MPs
remuneration in line with that of every other New Zealander, National's
Shadow Leader of the House Gerry Brownlee said today.
anomalies in the way that MPs receive remuneration have
over many years and it is time for the inconsistencies in tax treatment on
some aspects of remuneration to be rectified.
"We anticipate legislation
being brought to the House soon, then sent to a
select committee and passed into law prior to July 1 this year," he said.
