Heart by-pass surgery for MP

5:15 pm on 30 June 2009

National MP Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi will be on leave from Parliament for the next eight weeks, to undergo heart by-pass surgery.

Mr Bakshi has been experiencing problems with his heart for some time but expects to make a full recovery.

He entered Parliament on the party list at the last election.

During his absence, constituents should contact his Out-of-Parliament office in Auckland which will forward any cases requiring urgent attention to Mr Bakshi's colleagues in Parliament.
