From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 13 July 2020

The Australian government halted its controversial deportations of New Zealanders during the lockdown but they are starting again this week.

A dedicated facility has been set up to allow them to isolate for 14 days, but it hasn't been revealed where or what the facility is.

Chris Hipkins is the Minister of Health, Education, State Services and, this morning, is also standing in for the Prime Minister.

He speaks to Gyles Beckford.
