Labour has lodged a Privileges complaint with the Speaker regarding Peter Dunne’s statement to the Finance and Expenditure Committee that he did not leak the ‘Kitteridge’ report into the GCSB.
“On 29 May Peter Dunne denied leaking the Kitteridge report into the GCSB to the Finance and Expenditure Committee. Yet the outcome of the David Henry inquiry shows suspicion falls on Mr Dunne, who refuses to cooperate with the inquiry,” says Labour Leader David Shearer.
“An investigation by the Privileges Committee is required to get to the truth of the matter.
“New Zealanders are still none the wiser as to who leaked the Kitteridge Report. All we have is an MP who has resigned as minister but refuses to cooperate with the inquiry.
“The matter cannot lie here. This is why we have taken the matter to the Privileges Committee to get to the bottom of who leaked the report,” says David Shearer.
