Editorial

Wellington City Council chief executive Kevin Lavery.

It is extraordinary that Wellington City Council's chief executive could give large sums to an airline and leave almost no record about it. Kevin Lavery's decision might mean as much as $8m for Singapore Airlines over ten years, a substantial amount of money. The documentation of the deal is slender, amounting to perhaps two pages, with no sign of any significant analysis or correspondence. This seems a funny way to do business with public money.
