National Party State Services spokesman Gerry Brownlee says he is pleased that National Party intervention in the Paula
Tyler recruitment case will lead to changes in the way top public servants are hired.

relocation of the outgoing CYF CEO.
“I applaud Ms Tyler for taking my advice and donating the $25,000 worth of taxpayer funded household furnishings to
“But there are still outstanding questions.
“The risk to the taxpayer in this contract should have been spotted by the recruitment company that was paid $54,000 for
its advice,” says Mr Brownlee.
“Is the Government still using this recruitment company?”
