Minister of State Services Chris Hipkins has today asked the State Services Commissioner Peter Hughes to examine IRD’s reported inappropriate use of a public survey.

"I was concerned to read in the media that a survey by IRD included political questions," Chris Hipkins said.

"I suspect it was an error of judgement, but I have asked Mr Hughes to follow up with IRD.

"The political neutrality of the public service is paramount and I want to ensure that the message is reinforced," Chris Hipkins said.
