Further delay on Auckland America's Cup plans expected

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 6 March 2018

There could be a further delay to decisions on how to build an America's Cup village in Auckland, increasing fears that a key milestone will be missed. The government's key minister David Parker will be out of the country for the rest of the week, with an already-extended part of the planning process due to close in eight days. Three options for cup bases remain on the table, and RNZ News understands there's frustration about the Minister's absences as a deadline approaches. Auckland Correspondent Todd Niall joins us with the details.
