The Herald reports:
Prime Minister Christopher Luxon says big cheques will have to be written to pay out the many contracts canned as a result of repealing Three Waters. …
Luxon admitted there were employees under the scheme who were only one year into five-year contracts who would have to be paid out.
Whoever approved five year contracts should be named. It was well known that the centralisation model imposed by the government would be reversed by a new Government.
