National welcomes the Auditor General's report into the New Zealand Defence Force deployment into East Timor but it raises issues that need further investigation, National Defence spokesperson Max Bradford said today.
"It contains a series of recommendations that need full investigation and these include the comments made about a lack of intelligence available to New Zealand.
"I will be seeking an inquiry by the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee into the report so that we can get behind some of the recommendations made," Mr Bradford said.
