Let me just say I’m not against public spending on things like conferences. But I feel obliged to point out the job summit had a budget of $65,000. For 200 people for one day with no travel, accommodation or dinner.
That’s the same amount Housing NZ spent on a two day conference with travel, accommodation and food last year. Admittedly that was for half the number of people but do you remember all the fuss?
Why no fuss now?
