Labour on ACC levy reductions

NewstalkZB reports:

believes levy cuts next year are timed to be an election bribe.

The Government has announced earners’ levies will be cut 15 per cent and the employers’ levy by 17 per cent.

Labour’s Iain Lees-Galloway says the cuts are overdue – and the timing is cynical. …

“There’s no doubt that the timing of this is designed to be an election bribe.”

Okay so in this paragraph Labour effectively says the reductions should not occur in an election year.

It’s disappointment for motorists, who’ll have to wait another year before paying lower ACC levies.

ACC had recommended cutting the motor vehicle levy by at least five per cent.

But the Government’s putting it off until 2015.

Mr Lees-Galloway says that means the least risky road users will continue subsidising the most risky.

While in this paragraph they attacking the Government for delaying motor levy cuts until 2015.

They’re not happy campers!
