13 AUGUST 2019FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Responding to the resignation of the Chief Statistician, New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union spokesman Louis Houlbrooke says: “This is sad but the right thing to do in the circumstances. There has to be accountability in the public sector, especially in the case of a chief exec that earns over $400,000. Today we see an example of that.” “Running a census every five years is Stats NZ’s largest responsibility. Taxpayers will expect the next chief exec to focus on this core service, which should mean directing resources away from the department’s more wishy-washy work like measuring ‘spiritual health’.”
