Combined Beneficiaries Union

Combined Beneficiaries Union accused of misuse of taxpayer funds

The office manager of the Combined Beneficiaries Union had allegedly spent taxpayer money on personal bills, National MP Judith Collins said in Parliament today.

But that drew a warning from Ministry of Social Development Minister Ruth Dyson for the MP to be careful not to damage the good name of a person who did not enjoy parliamentary privilege.

Ms Dyson said Mrs Collins had made allegations about a man last month that had turned out to be "totally without substance".
