MEDIA RELEASE


3 August 1999

Treasurer Bill English today released figures showing projected changes to
Vote: Police over the next five years.

"This year's budget of $840.536 million includes one-off funding of $6.782
million for APEC and the Americas Cup. The difference of $24.022 million
between this year's budget and next year's indicative budget of $816.514
million includes this one-off funding as well as the savings expected from
the Police Review.

"After 2000/01 the budget is projected to increase to $820.648 million
because of an increase in the funding provided for police cost pressures.

"Indicative budgets have not been finalised for subsequent years so they are
the same as the 2001/02 year," said Mr English.

The information was provided in response to a Parliamentary Question from the
Labour Party.

SCOOP COVERAGE: CHRISTCHURCH MOSQUES TERROR ATTACK

Gordon Campbell: On Why We Shouldn’t Genuflect To Calls For Secrecy

Reportedly most (and possibly all) of the Royal Commission investigation into the Christchurch mosque shootings will be closed to the general public and to the media.

Oh sure, come delivery date in December there will be some kind of “public-facing” document containing conclusions and rationales, but there will have been no interim way of scrutinizing the inquiry’s rigour, or how fairly its findings reflect the evidence. More>>
