Gower: 'Serco's here for good'

A wide-ranging review into private prison operator Serco is due by the end of the week.

It comes after another bad day for the company, with revelations a Serco-employed guard at Mt Eden was caught on camera teaching prisoners how to fight.

3 News political editor Patrick Gower joined Paul Henry this morning to explain why, despite all these revelations, Serco's contract won't be cancelled.

"They are clearly dodging fines, they are clearly dodging their responsibility, they know that contract inside out and there's no way the Government will be able to tear that up. Despite everything they say, Serco's here for good."
