Bravo – Labour wants to scrap a quango

Jacinda Ardern has announced:

Labour will scrap the Families Commission to prioritise work on reducing child poverty, its Children’s spokesperson Jacinda Ardern says.

Bravo. I’m all for Labour finding quangos they want to scrap. May they locate many more of them.

Sadly this may be a one off. I think this is the first time in five years they have found a quango they want to scrap. But hey, a start is a start.

Labour of course set up the Families Commission in (I think) 2005 as part of a coalition deal with United Future.

Maybe the Ministry of Women’s Affairs could be next?
