Frustration from the opposition over an alleged Government lack of transparency over New Zealand's Delta outbreak.

National's Covid-19 Response spokesperson is pushing for the last year's Epidemic Response Committee to be reinstated.

It would allow the committee to question the pandemic response, without being shut down.

Chris Bishop says he attempted to ask Chris Hipkins how many contacts have had a test, but the chair jumped in to say he couldn't ask that. Bishop said it's "just Labour running interference."
