New tenders for convention centre urged

11:58 am on 21 April 2012

Labour leader David Shearer has called for tenders to be reopened for the Sky City Auckland convention centre.

Opposition parties and interest groups are critical of Prime Minister John Key about a deal to build the centre in return for Sky City casino being allowed to operate more gaming machines.

On The Nation programme on TV3 on Saturday, Mr Shearer said he was in favour of the convention centre, but was against what he sees as inappropriateness in the tender procedure.
