Leggett’s letter

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


I have re­cently seen an Of­fi­cial In­for­ma­tion Act re­quest for cor­re­spon­dence to and from Steven Joyce since his time as Trans­port Min­is­ter with re­gards to the Welling­ton Road of Na­tional Sig­nif­i­cance.

Among the cor­re­spon­dence it is with some hor­ror that I read a letter from Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett dated March 4, 2011.

In it, Mr Leggett states: ‘‘Ru­mours cir­cu­lat­ing since the Christchurch earth­quake re­lat­ing to the pos­si­ble de­lays in the com­mence­ment of the [Air­port to Levin ar­te­rial plan] are caus­ing concern.’’ He goes on to state: ‘‘I would like to re­quest that the Gov­ern­ment ring-fence the fund­ing for the en­tire air­port to Levin ar­te­rial plan.’’
