Judith Collins says she was contacted with allegations about Labour minister

From Morning Report, 7:26 am on 22 July 2020

Judith Collins says she has been contacted with allegations about the actions of a Labour Party minister, as she deals with the inappropriate actions of one of her MPs.

Former National Party MP Andrew Falloon is still under fire for sending of pornographic images to multiple women.

More came forward yesterday and as of Wednesday morning four people have said they received pornographic images from Falloon.

Falloon resigned from Parliament effective immediately on Tuesday after Collins publicly called for it.

Collins told Susie Ferguson on Morning Report she thought Falloon's actions were "despicable".

She also said she had been contacted with an allegation about a Labour Party minister's actions, which she passed straight on to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Collins said the allegations were about "fairly inappropriate behaviour".
