Maharey to launch Work and Income regional plans

5 December 2000 Media Advisory

Maharey to launch Work and Income regional plans

Social Services and Employment Minister Steve Maharey launches the Department of Work and Income's regional plans for 2000/2001 tomorrow at a Beehive press briefing.

Increased local flexibility was the principal recommendation of the Hunn Report ordered by the Government earlier this year to refocus DWI and improve its services. As an initial response, each of DWI's 13 thirteen regions were asked to prepare regional plans summarising the alternate employment approaches they intend to pursue to get more beneficiaries into paid work.

Mr Maharey will be accompanied by Work and Income Chief Executive Christine Rankin and the Department's thirteen Regional Commissioners.

Time: 9-9.30am
Location: Government Caucus Room, Parliament Buildings, Wellington

Media are invited to arrive from 8.45am to read copies of the
regional plans.

Copies of the regional plans will be available at the launch and will also be posted on Steve Maharey's website from 9am at www.executive.govt.nz/minister/maharey.
