National Party Leader Simon Bridges is appalled that the letter from the accused Christchurch gunman was ever allowed to be sent to a supporter in Russia.

Minister Kelvin Davis has admitted failings in his department after a letter from the alleged Christchurch terror attack gunman has been posted online.

Bridges told Chris Lynch it's unforgivable that even this morning, Minister Kelvin Davis didn't know the full details of how many letters the accused had sent. 

"The Minister should have been all over it, that's what they get paid for, they are asleep at the wheel. An apology is owed to the people of New Zealand."
