Trans-Tasman bubble plan on the way

From Morning Report, 7:46 am on 28 May 2020

Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters says he is frustrated at the speed at which a trans-Tasman travel bubble is emerging, saying it should have been up and running already.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is urging patience and says a group of government and business representatives are working hard to deliver a blueprint for action.

The Trans-Tasman Safe Border Group has been coordinated by the Australia New Zealand leadership forum and has involved representatives from both sides of the ditch.

Scott Tasker, from Auckland Airport, is the group's co-chair.
