Prime Minister John Key has confirmed the deconstruction of Christ Church Cathedral is on hold while the Anglican Church considers an independent report saying it can be saved.
Key said in Christchurch today that he had not yet seen the report as it had been forwarded to Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee's office.
He confirmed that the demolition of the cathedral had been halted while the church considered the report, which says "maximum retention" of the cathedral is feasible and can be achieved without any safety risks.
