Na­tional fi­nance man af­ter full cost­ing of coali­tion deal

The Dominion Post - - Politics -

Af­ter new Fi­nance Min­is­ter Grant Robert­son did the rounds on the week­end TV shows, his old op­po­nent Steven Joyce wasted no time in at­tack­ing him. While Labour has costed its own poli­cies, a full cost­ing of the coali­tion pack­age has not yet been made avail­able. Robert­son says he hasn’t had full ac­cess to Trea­sury yet, but Joyce says this isn’t good enough. ‘‘He’s ei­ther had them costed and doesn’t like what they add up to, or not had them costed. Ei­ther way it’s not a re­as­sur­ing start.’’
