A Labour MP has written to Auckland University about fresh complaints against its childcare centre which last month banned a breast-feeding mother from entering its premises to feed her then 16-month-old baby.
In the letter to vice-chancellor Stuart McCutcheon, Labour's Chinese community spokesman Raymond Huo said the new complaints included "a child being bitten, unchanged nappies, unhappy staff, low morale, unhappy parents, a child given a drink by a passing stranger, intimidated parents and concerns about poor management".
Mr Huo said his office had been "inundated with information" from concerned parents, with some incidents going back to 2008.
A university spokesman said Mr McCutcheon had not received the letter from Mr Huo, and had no knowledge of the cases.

"Without further information, we are in no position to comment on anonymous, non-specific claims," he said.
Mr Huo said he was willing to forward the complaints, with names and addresses withheld, if Professor McCutcheon was prepared to look into the new complaints against the Park Avenue Infant and Toddler Centre.
Last month, the creche banned a mother from entering the centre after she complained to the supervisor there about a lack of progress on a formal complaint about food and drink relating to her son.
Campus Life director Brendan Mosely said an investigation found no basis for the complaint.
