From Morning Report, 6:35 am on 31 January 2019

Its New Zealand deputy managing director Andrew Bowater has also previously offered to limit the number of Chinese staff working on the project - if it goes ahead - amid fears about a recent law that can compel any Chinese citizen or corporation to cooperate with the superpower's intelligence services.
