Dunne corrects news report
United Future leader, Peter Dunne, today corrected an erroneous news report concerning voting on the Prostitution Reform Bill.
The report claimed that United Future MP's were bloc voting against the Bill, which gets its second reading in Parliament today.
"The report is wrong. We are treating the Bill as the subject of a conscience vote. It is pure coincidence that all eight of us have reached similar conclusions about whether the Bill should proceed," said Mr Dunne.
