    Grant Robertson says he sought assurances from the Labour Party after concerns were raised with him

    Grant Robertson says he sought assurances from the Labour Party after concerns were raised with him


    But the Finance Minister won't say whether those were sexual assault allegations against a staffer.

    National's deputy leader Paula Bennett claims Robertson - and three of the Prime Minister's senior staff - had known about those for some time.

    Robertson says he checked that issues were dealt with appropriately - but won't confirm or deny Bennett's claims.

    He says very serious allegations have been raised and need to be worked through.

    Robertson says this is not a political game of who knew what, when - it's about young people.
