Labour blocks China expert on foreign interference committee

From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 8 March 2019

Labour MPs have blocked leading China politics expert, Anne-Marie Brady, from speaking at Parliament about foreign interference in elections. Dr Brady wanted to talk to the justice select committe after Justice Minister Andrew Little asked it to look at the issue of foreign interference as part of its review of the 2017 election. National says Labour MPs voted against her submitting because they didn't want more scrutiny about China.
