Pg 36

Hon John KEY (National, Helensville)

Earl of Auckland – commercial property

2 Interests (such as shares and bonds) in companies and business entities

Little Nell – property investment
Bank of America – banking

Jackson Mining – gold mining

(I note that this Register is dated 31 January 2009.)

However – in NZ – the ‘least corrupt country in the world’ (yeah right) – is it appropriate for ANY NZ Ministers (or MPs for that matter) to hold shares in ANY companies?
