ACC minister hints at reductions in levies

5:27 pm on 10 May 2011

ACC Minister Nick Smith says there could be reductions in some levies later in the year.

Dr Smith says the Government has had to work hard to get costs under control and improved performance in the Non-Earners' Account has freed up more than $600 million of taxpayer funding over the next four years.

He says it has also given the Government some room to consider reductions in levies in the Earners Account, but no decisions will be made until later this year
