Corin Dann interviews Trade and Export Growth Minister David Parker.
On reports a needle has been found in a packet of Australian strawberries purchased in Auckland:
"The Australian authorities, as you'd expect, are being very co-operative and they're endeavouring to resolve the situation as soon as possible. I think they're doing everything they can."
"It's a bit like when New Zealand has a problem with one of our exports. We expect the country on the other side won't over react but at the same time they'll protect their people and that's what we're doing."
