Design Fault Known Before Canterbury Delivered

We warned you a few weeks ago that Defence Minister Phil Goff was in the hot seat. Today the Government - as usual, just before Christmas, has fessed up to one of a number of scandals that it has been trying to control. The design fault that saw a rescue boat lost overboard in a storm was known before the Canterbury was delivered.

So why was nothing done about it???

A second inquiry, into the death of Able Seaman Byron Solomon on October 5 when an inflatable boat capsized alongside the Canterbury, is due to report early next year.

Watch this space.....
