IRD admits error with political question in survey

From Morning Report, 7:23 am on 12 February 2019

National says the Government needs to come clean on how much involvement it had in a government department asking New Zealander's about their political persuasions in a survey. Inland Revenue has admitted it was wrong to include the question in the research about the public's view on fairness in the tax system and the State Services Minister, Chris Hipkins, has asked the State Services Commissioner to investigate.
