About a dozen protesters greeted Paula Bennett as she arrived for a meeting in Whanganui this morning.
The Social Housing and State Services Minister was speaking to a breakfast gathering of the Whanganui Chamber of Commerce at the Collegiate Motor Inn on Liverpool Street.

The protest was mainly in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, though there was a lone beneficiary complaining loudly about social welfare.
Police were present but there were no serious incidents.
