    The Finance Minister's defended the 11.7 million dollars shelled out to Taranaki's Green private school

    The Finance Minister's defended the 11.7 million dollars shelled out to Taranaki's Green private school


    The money came from the government's Covid recovery fund and has caused a storm within the Greens, given the building grant was announced by co-leader James Shaw.

    The party's always been opposed to taxpayers' money going to private schools.

    However, Grant Robertson says it was all above board coming out of the infrastructure programme - and will create 200 construction jobs.

    Robertson says $23 million dollars has also just been spent upgrading New Plymouth's Spotswood College.
