Port in a (small) storm

Written by  Milking It

The proposal to relocate Auckland Port to Northland continues to float in open waters.

Finance Minister Grant Robertson still hasn’t backed the relocation, which has become the baby of outspoken NZ First Minister Shane Jones.

Radio NZ reports that Jones was recently told to temper his public comments about the extent of support for Northport from the Government rather than just his own party, New Zealand First.

He acknowledged Labour’s only commitment was to a feasibility study, now done.

The agri sector, a major user of the port, is watching keenly to see whether politics or good policy will eventually win.
