What kind of work will the prisoners be doing? How many hours will the prisoners be expected to work?
What kind of employment contract will the prisoners have?

Will Corrections be receiving payment for providing prisoners to work in this programme?

What opportunities will be provided for people to complete the relevant NCEA qualification and to have employment in forestry industry?

Also, how many trees is the programme expected to plant and over how long?

Yours faithfully,
