Prebble Pleased NZ Post Won’t Appeal Court Ruling
Monday 26th Feb 2001
ACT Leader Hon Richard Prebble said that he was relieved and delighted to learn that New Zealand Post was abandoning its planned appeal for an injunction preventing him from debating matters in NZ Post’s proposed business plan for the taxpayer-funded People’s Bank.
“I believe this action showed that NZ Post did not appreciate the role of an MP in a Parliamentary democracy.
“I also believe that NZ Post failed to appreciate that there was no way that either Jenny Shipley or myself would ever use the commercially sensitive information to assist an NZ Post competitor. We have not done that and we have no intention of doing so,” Hon Richard Prebble said.
