More on the laziest Ministers

The Taxpayers Union asked the Cabinet Office how many cabinet papers each Minister had submitted to Cabinet or a Cabinet Committee since they were sworn in. The Ministers in order from most to least productive are:

  1. Hipkins 41
  2. Parker 31
  3. Little 23
  4. Wood 23
  5. Robertson 20
  6. Faafoi 17
  7. Clark 15
  8. Sepuloni 14
  9. Mahuta 13
  10. Woods 12
  11. Nash 11
  12. Whaitiri 10
  13. O’Connor 9
  14. Williams 8
  15. Shaw 7
  16. Henare 7
  17. Ardern 7
  18. Verrall 6
  19. Tinetti 5
  20. Davis 3
  21. Sio 2
  22. Allan 1
  23. Radhakrishnan 1
  24. Jackson 1
  25. Mallard 1 (as Speaker)
  26. Twyford 0
  27. Davidson 0

Twyford and Davidson haven’t done a single paper to their colleagues in almost six months. Yet they are getting almost $300,000 a year remuneration.

UPDATE: Twyford has been on leave since December as his wife is sick so that would explain his lack of papers. No excuse for Davidson though.
