Hopes the Government will take some responsibility and acknowledge the issues within MIQ.

A High Court decision found the lottery system to get a spot was unfair,  and the criteria for emergency vouchers, too narrow.

Journalist Charlotte Bellis made headlines when she initially couldn't get home from Afghanistan while pregnant.

She told Kate Hawkesby to hear the Government say it will do better, and not be defensive, would go a long way for a lot of people.

Bellis says no one expects people to be perfect, but the Government should appreciate there are always things to learn from emergency situations.
