NZPA once again writes yesterday's news
The NZ Herald ran this story this afternoon.
New figures released by the Department of Corrections show the number of prisoners using drugs has hit a record low.Acting prison services assistant general manager Leanne Field said the number of prisoners returning positive results after being randomly tested had plummeted to 10.5 per cent, the lowest rate ever recorded across all prisons in New Zealand.
That's weird. Judith Collins said the same thing ten days ago.
The figures were given to the Minister in March. So the figures are not as new as NZPA makes out. But thanks for the old news, NZPA. It's just a pity you didn't bother to ask Corrections any questions - like these ones. After all you had a bit of time to do so.
