New Zealand's Auditor-General Lyn Provost says she will not investigate alleged abuse of a Parliamentary travel perk by former minister Pansy Wong.

"It will do more 'public good' for Government to adopt the recommendations of a report tabled today on improving serious flaws in the entire ministerial spending system, she says."

Left unsaid was any word on whether conflicts of interest in promoting her husband's private business constitute corruption. Or whether they profited from that conflict of interest.

The AG's decision compares with a six year sentence given to one of only a few Polynesian MPs, Phillip Taito Field, after he got an Asian immigrant to tile a property of his, in Samoa.
