Revealed: Civil Aviation Authority's Sky-High Catering Costs


The New Zealand Taxpayers' Union can reveal that the Civil Aviation Authority spent over $232,000 on catering between July 2018 and June 2019.

An annual catering expense of $232,000 is around $1000 every single working day of that year.

Living costs in New Zealand are spiralling out of control and Kiwis are desperate for tax relief. Rather than making Government departments more efficient, we're seeing free lunches rolled out in public entities.

Hard-working taxpayers don't get free lunches. Are these bureaucrats really more deserving?

The Taxpayers' Union contacted a CAA employee to further enquire about the catering expenses. Regrettably, she was away from her desk for a — presumably catered — CAA function.

The Taxpayers' Union is waiting on further details.
