From Morning Report, 7:26 am on 17 September 2019

Claims and counter-claims are continuing to swirl over who knew what and when, regarding sexual assault allegations against a Labour Party staff member. Auckland lawyer Simon Mitchell - who was a member of the Labour Party panel investigating complaints against the staffer - put out a detailed statement yesterday denying there was ever any mention of sexual assault. A complainant continues to insist, however, that she specifically referred to sexual assault. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern joins us.
