SIS allegations too serious to ignore

National Party Leader Don Brash says the allegations made against the SIS are too serious to ignore.

“I am offering to work with the Prime Minister to get a process underway quickly to further examine the claims,” says Dr Brash, who is also a member of the Parliamentary committee responsible for the SIS.

“It is important that both the public and the Government have confidence in our intelligence service. These unanswered claims have the potential to put that confidence at risk.

“We should be laying party politics aside if we are to properly examine the issues raised by the weekend reports,” says Dr Brash.
