Welfare review alone is costing over $2 million

TV1 says the government is spending $170 million on reviews. The government has refused to comment beyond saying it is far, far less.

I can't speak for the rest but I do know that the welfare review is costing $2.1 million.

The estimated total cost of the group for the welfare overhaul for 2017/18 and 2018/19 is $2.1 million. 


In a related area, the Whanau Ora review is estimated to cost between $700,000 and $800,000.

Context: $2,900,000 would cover over 7,500 winter heating payments for families with children.
