Mr Brown last week admitted a two-year affair and there is an investigation into spending by his office and whether the woman got preferential treatment.

He was one of three speakers due to launch a report in Auckland on Thursday evening on health within the gay community.

The event's organisers say Mr Brown's office cancelled his appearance about an hour before the launch began.
