It was dis­trib­uted on 20 July 2011 in and around the Hen­der­son, Auck­land area.

The Labour party also under­took to dis­con­tinue to send out these types of brochures in a press release of 9 July shortly after the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion referred another brochure to the Police for pros­e­cu­tion. Their spokesman, Grant Robert­son said:

So on 9 July Labour said they’ll stop using unauthorised election advertisements, yet on 20 July they were caught doing exactly that again.
