From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 22 June 2020

National Party Rotorua MP Todd McClay is annoyed newly arrived international passengers were bused from Auckland to Rotorua for mandatory managed isolation.

He says it happened under the cover of darkness and the people of Rotorua need answers. They arrived in four buses between 10pm and midnight on Saturday.

The government says the move was necessary because there they were running out of room in Auckland.

McClay speaks to Philippa Tolley.
