From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 11 October 2017

Documents show the government has considered increasing fuel taxes despite critising Labour over its tax plans.

Internal documents released to the Green Party show Transport Minister Simon Bridges looked into how to close the funding gap in the Auckland Transport budget.

"It's unsurprising but very disingenuous" for National to have campaigned as it did while considering fuel tax hike, Greens' transport spokesperson Julie-Anne Genter told us.
