Bennett investigated by Privacy watchdog...
Privacy Commission is investigating the Social Development Ministry and Paula Bennett over release of info about beneficiaries
The Privacy Commissioner has confirmed her office is investigating Paula Bennett and the Social Development Ministry.
Marie Shroff recently received a complaint about both, after the Social Development Minister revealed the welfare payments being received by two solo mothers.
The women had publicly complained about the Government's decision to scrap the Training Incentive Allowance.
Ms Shroff says the Privacy Act requires her office to conduct investigations in a confidential manner.
