Work will begin soon on assessing which state assets, if any, will be put on National’s for-sale list going into the next election, says the Prime Minister.

John Key indicated yesterday that any part-sale of Kiwibank would be a public float and not a trade sale and that the Government would want to retain a majority shareholding.

But he warned reporters at his post-Cabinet press conference not to assume that National’s moratorium on sales would be lifted.

“I certainly wouldn’t get ahead of yourselves. I’m not saying there couldn’t be a change. It’s possible but I also wouldn’t guarantee that there would be one.”
