Government funding to KiwiRail and Rail

Iain Palmer made this Official Information request to Minister of Finance

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Minister of Finance should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Iain Palmer

Dear Minister of Finance,

Since the current Government has taken office on 19 November 2008, how much funding has KiwiRail received?

Outside of direct KiwiRail funding, what over funding has been spent on Rail over the same time period?

Yours faithfully,

Iain Palmer
