    Government Statistician Liz MacPherson is facing contempt of Parliament after being ordered by MPs to produce census information.

    In an unusual move, a select committee has placed a standing order on Statistics NZ chief executive to produce the number of partial responses were received in Census 2018.

    MacPherson was first asked by to provide the answer by the governance and administration select committee during its annual review in February, and again on Wednesday. Both times she declined.

    Lock her up!
    How this woman still has her job is beyond me. Forget about Mueller where’s our census. Shaw needs to create an unholy row, he wasn’t responsible to the snafu , but some one was.
    A prime example of the public service chair shuffling which moves incompetents around
