Labour MP 'stating the obvious' that Curran saga could have been handled better – Inside Parliament

MP Greg O'Connor has apologised "unreservedly" to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for saying that the Clare Curran saga could have been handled better. 

But he was merely "stating the obvious", said 1 NEWS reporter Benedict Collins.

"I don't think anyone will disagree with that. I'll tell you what, it will be done better next time," Mr O'Connor told Newstalk ZB previously. 

Ms Curran resigned from her remaining Ministerial portfolios last Friday, after being stripped from her Government Digital Services and Open Government responsibilities last month for failing to disclose a meeting for a second time.
