Headline: Govt must reveal the whole truth on the state of Chorus

“The Government must provide an absolute and full release of the Ernst & Young Chorus report without any sanitisation of the findings,” says Labour’s Associate ICT spokesperson Clare Curran.

“And it has to be the whole financial truth and nothing but the truth.

“Amy Adams must be open with the people of New Zealand over the real state of Chorus’ books. She is under great scrutiny over how she deals with the Chorus crisis and needs to act with the utmost transparency and integrity.

 “Yesterday’s announcement that all political parties represented in Parliament, other than National, will not back any legislation that would overrule the Commerce Commission’s decision, means the Government is out in the cold and Amy Adams will have to reassess her options.

“The country needs ultrafast broadband and Labour remains committed to faster, cheaper broadband in a pro-competitive market framework. But it must be remembered that this is entirely a mess of the Government’s own making.

“The best solution for businesses and consumers is for the Government to enforce the contract that Chorus willingly signed up to.

“Anything less would be crony capitalism,” says Clare Curran.
