Clarification: Payment to ‘The Limery’ is a loan, not a
13 JUNE 2019
On Wednesday the New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union issued a statement about the Provincial Growth Fund’s $355 million loan to ‘The Limery’ in Wairoa.
The introduction of our statement called the loan a ‘payment’, which could lead some to believe it was a grant rather than a loan to be paid back. Management at The Limery has asked us to clarify that the payment was indeed a loan.
Taxpayers will be happy to have this confirmed.
