Conviction no secret

2 November 2000 Media Statement

Conviction no secret

Ruth Dyson said today that a drug-related conviction from her youth had been declared on every Labour Party nomination form she had filled in.

She said she was convicted and fined on a charge of possession of cannabis when a teenager.

Helen Clark has long been aware of this matter.

"I find it sickening that some 25 years later someone has anonymously passed this information to journalists," Ruth Dyson said.
