Gun buyback data breach not government's fault -Jacinda Ardern

From Morning Report, 7:27 am on 3 December 2019

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says she backs her minister Stuart Nash, despite opposition MPs calling for him to resign over a data breach involving the gun buyback.

Ms Ardern told Morning Report the data breach was the fault of a private company, not the government.

"There is absolutely no reason why the Police Minister needs to take any responsibility for this."
