David Shearer sends condolences to family of Warren Freer

Labour Leader David Shearer is sending his condolences to the family and friends of former MP for Mount Albert, Warren Freer.

Mr Freer died yesterday.

He represented Labour in the Auckland electorate from 1947 to 1981, and was the first Western politician to visit communist China.

Mr Shearer says Mr Freer's efforts in developing New Zealand's trade links with Asia have had an impact on our current trade relations.
