The Education Minister has blamed her predecessor over school project cost overruns.

The Government promised to launch a Ministerial Inquiry to investigate the problems with the school property system.

Minister Erica Stanford says the previous Government has created a 'pipeline' of projects they were unable to deliver on.

"Here I am, as a new Minister trying to get on with curriculum, and pedagogy and assessments and making sure our kids are achieving at school and turning up- and I have a pipeline of 350 schools that the Ministry are not able to deliver on."
