Labour caucus meeting cancelled

The Labour Party caucus in Napier has been cancelled.

The retreat was due to start on Monday, but 10 MPs, including party leader David Shearer, were unable to leave Auckland because of airport fog.

Deputy Leader Grant Robertson, who is MP for Wellington Central, also indicated he wants to stay in the capital due to the earthquakes.
