“It turns out the Government has been announcing policies for four years and had nobody to implement them,” says ACT
Leader David Seymour.
“It’s been revealed that after four years of failure to deliver
the Government is setting up an ‘Implementation Unit’ within the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
“When you don’t have any answers you set up new organisations. Now we have the Government setting up a new department to
implement things other departments failed at.
“Jacinda Ardern has given a hospital pass to this unit and is admitting that she doesn’t have confidence in her
ministers to do their jobs.
“We had the so called ‘year of delivery’ now we have the ‘unit of delivery.’
“Meanwhile, in Grant Robertson’s pre-Budget speech it’s as if private businesses that employ people and generate wealth
“The big priority should be productivity. Once again that’s been ignored.
“The COVID recovery fund was always an excessive fund, in our alternative budget
we made that clear.
“It’s clear the Government has failed to deliver almost everything it’s announced, at least now they can see what
everyone else can.”
