Mahia MP Janet Mackey’s integrity is under question after she voted for a bill she told constituents she would oppose,
Enterprise and Commerce Minister Max Bradford says.
“Janet Mackey last night voted to reinstate the Alliance’s Paid Parental Leave Bill.
“But earlier this year, in a well argued article, she told her constituents the legislation was shoddy, vague, imprecise
and patently unfair.
“She has been caught out saying one thing to her constituents and then doing another.
“When challenged in Parliament today, Ms Mackey confirmed whips had acurately cast her vote.
“This raises questions over the integrity of the local member,” Mr Bradford said.
