The National Government is testing the water, so to speak, to consider asset sales...
Public's view on partial privatisation of state assets to be assessed; Labour claims Nats testing water for future sale of SOEs; of course, what would you expect?
Labour is suspicious of work being done to assess the public's view on partial privatisation of state assets.
The Crown Ownership Monitoring Unit is undertaking the task at the request of Treasury.
Labour Party Finance spokesman David Cunliffe claims the Government's motivations are clear. He says it is obvious National intends privatising state assets if it is re-elected.
Mr Cunliffe says the Monitoring Unit's actions are a pre-cursor to that.
I wonder if NZ Post and Kiwi Bank are both being considered?
