We read today of out Government announcing savings of 54 million dollars in Air travel.

They managed to get the six month travel bill down to only 198 million.

So how did they do this. I guess one issue is the mix is that Kevin 07 is no longer the Foreign Minister. He sure ran up the bill, however he did, I believe, a good job of it. We are also told that they planned better, booked trips earlier and made use of cheaper travelling options.

The other measure used for the savings were teleconferencing.

It leave the question, should we congratulate them for saving 54 million or castigate them for having wasted 54 million the period before.
