Re: Parliamentary Services Funded Travel being used for Party Business

Dear Dr Smith,

Could you please clarify the rules around the use of Parliamentary Services funded travel where MPs are predominantly travelling on party business.

The example I have in mind is MPs travelling for Party conferences or conventions.

In the event that MPs are breaking the rules around the use of parliamentary services funding to attend party business could you please inform me what steps you will be taking to recover the costs from those who have breached the rules?

Should you choose not to recover these costs could you please inform me what steps I can personally take to recover these funds on behalf of the New Zealand tax payer.

Yours faithfully
