National's unimpressed with allegations the Prime Minister's fiance tried to acquire a rapid antigen test for mates.  

Clarke Gayford allegedly told a Tauranga pharmacist the rules had changed - and he could sell the test to his friends. 

It's understood a friend sought the test as he was potentially a close contact of UK-based DJ Dimension - who had Omicron.  

Rapid Antigen Tests can currently only be sold to unvaccinated asymptomatic people needing to travel. 

National's Covid-19 spokesperson Chris Bishop told Tim Dower Gayford needs to know his place.  

“He doesn’t have any role, he should have said look, that’s not for me thanks very much, not appropriate I get involved here, my wife’s [sic] the Prime Minister.”
