In the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque attacks, the government is urgently reviewing the country's hate speech laws. It's also considering whether hate crime should be a new legal offence. National leader Simon Bridges supports a review but has urged the government to be cautious about crossing the line and restricting free speech. Andrew Little is the Minister of Justice.
