Wider community to vent SkyCity deal concerns

Related

Community leaders will gather in Auckland today to discuss their concerns about the Government's convention centre for pokies deal with SkyCity.

The Greens have organised the gathering involving councillors, gambling, poverty and public health services to discuss the deal.

Greens co-leader Metiria Turei says the deal was never discussed with the wider community.

The Government has yet to release a report compiled by the Department of Internal Affairs which warned it of the potential for increased social harm as a result of more pokie machines being at the casino.

The Prime Minister admits he's seen the report, but is deflecting all questions to the Economic Development Minister.

"You'd be best to go and ask Steven Joyce."
