Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will meet her Australian counterpart this weekend, her first overseas trip as leader of New Zealand. While there are many issues to discuss the detention centre Manus Island is likely to be high on the agenda. Ms Ardern has kept her predecessor's offer to take in 150 refugees who remain in Australia's offshore detention centres. There are fears this could set a precedent though, which is why the offers been rejected by the Australian government many times. The panellists discuss the best move.
