4 September 2009

Napier’s Art Deco Trust is not the focus of an investigation by the Department of Internal Affairs, the Director of Gambling Compliance, Mike Hill said today, referring to a story in Wellington’s Dominion Post.

“We are looking into the funding activities of gambling trusts that fund community groups in the Hawkes Bay and we have talked to the Art Deco Trust in the course of our inquiries,” he said.
