Letter published on Auditor-General website
David Seymour MP wrote to our Office raising concerns about the involvement of Hon Shane Jones in the decision to grant $4.6 million to the Manea Footprints of Kupe Cultural Heritage and Education Centre through the Provincial Growth Fund. Mr Jones had previously declared a conflict of interest in relation to the matter. We have published our response to Mr Seymour on our website.
