Field’s Lack of Co-Operation Outrageous

Labour MP Taito Phillip Field’s lack of co-operation with the police investigation into his dealings with immigrants is outrageous and Helen Clark should act immediately, says National Party Leader John Key.

“If Mr Field has nothing to hide, he would have no problem speaking to the police,” says Mr Key.

“Helen Clark herself declared before Christmas that Mr Field’s activities were unethical.

“MPs – and prime ministers - should set a high standard of behaviour and uphold certain minimum standards.

“Stonewalling the police in their inquiries is not a standard any political party should be accepting.

“Taxpayers have already had half a million dollars of their money spent on an inquiry that was set up to fail.

“Helen Clark cannot continue to sit on her hands forever just to protect her Government’s slender majority.”
