Labour Leader Helen Clark said today that following
the announcement from the Police Commissioner regarding an
investigation into Taito Phillip Field, Labour has placed
the MP on leave.
“The MP has been placed on leave by the
Labour whips. He will remain on leave until the outcome of
the investigation is known.
“At this stage, police are
investigating allegations. Allegations in themselves are
not proof of wrongdoing.
“Given, however, that these
allegations involve Mr Field’s practices as a Member of
Parliament, the Parliamentary Labour Party is taking this
action at this time,” Helen Clark
