Govt has 'serious concerns' for Manus detainees

From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 13 November 2017

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull are due to meet again this week to talk about Manus Island. About 420 asylum seekers and refugees are still at the now-closed Manus Island centre - they've been without food, water or medical supplies for almost a fortnight. Ms Ardern says the Government has serious concerns about the plight of asylum seekers. Finance Minister Grant Robertson joins us to discuss the next steps.
