Gov­er­nance re­port de­layed

Central Leader - - News -

Com­mis­sion­ers have been granted more time to re­port on what Prime Min­is­ter He­len Clark calls the “com­plex jig­saw” of Auck­land gov­er­nance.

The Royal Com­mis­sion into Auck­land Gov­er­nance will re­port back at the end of March in­stead of De­cem­ber 1.

Prime Min­is­ter He­len Clark says the work­load has been greater than ex­pected.

“Since April, the com­mis­sion has re­ceived more than 3500 sub­mis­sions and con­ducted hear­ings for 27 days in nine lo­ca­tions through­out Auck­land,” she says.

“ The com­mis­sion has un­der­taken a sig­nifi - cant task and in­tends to ob­tain ex­pert and peer re­views for as­pects of its re­port, so it’s not sur­pris­ing that fur­ther time will be needed.”
