Questions are being raised as to how transparent the government is being after the Police Minister didn't disclose a police inquiry into who leaked a reportedly confidential watchlist to the media. Stuart Nash denied top secret information relating to a watchlist drawn up by police following the Christchurch terror attack had been leaked to media. RNZ revealed yesterday the Police Commissioner has launched an inquiry, and while the information wasn't classified top secret, police were treating the matter seriously. Mr Nash says if you want the right answer you have to ask the right question. Our political reporter Jo Moir has been following the story.
