Labour wants to increase number of MPs - Collins

Related

The Justice Minister's accusing Labour of wanting to increase the number of MPs in Parliament.

Any sort of agreement on MMP reform appears to have fallen away, with Labour announcing it'll introduce a Member's Bill to implement the most important recommendations made by the Electoral Commission because it doesn't trust the Government to do so.

One of the proposals is to increase the number of MPs as the population grows.

Judith Collins says Labour is politicking and questions whether it realises there'd be more MPs under its approach.

But Labour says adopting the more MPs recommendation is not a proposal it is making.
