United Future vote for OSH expenditure increase
This evening in Parliament, United Future voted for a 16% increase in OSH administration expenditure, says National's Industrial Relations spokesperson Roger Sowry.
"Having voted for the Department of Labour to have the money to implement the yet to be passed OSH legislation, United whose leader has described the legislation as lunatic fringe would have us believe that they are opposed to it.
"United can't have it both ways.By voting for the extra funding they have voted for the extra offices and bureaucracy that will be imposed on business," says Mr Sowry.
