Royal Commission on Auckland Governance report delivered to Government
The Royal Commission on Auckland Governance has today delivered its report, some days earlier than the scheduled reporting date of 31 March.
The report was presented to the Governor-General at his temporary official residence, Vogel House, by the Chair of the Royal Commission, Hon Peter Salmon, QC. The other Commissioners, Dame Margaret Bazley and Mr David Shand were also present.
The Governor-General, Hon Anand Satyanand, thanked the Commissioners for their service and formally delivered the report to the Government.
The Secretary for Internal Affairs, Brendan Boyle, said this Royal Commission, like others before it, has provided citizens with a way of influencing the development of public policy on a critically important issue, and provided government with independent and informed advice.
“The Report is a substantial document of more than 700 pages,” said Brendan Boyle. “Ministers have committed to releasing the report as soon as possible to the public, but they will require some days to consider it. Further announcements about the Government’s response, and the timing of release, will be made later.
