  • Scoop Audio (20 Minutes): Audio on demand of Prime Minister John Key's press conference today following an emergency cabinet meeting over the Christchurch earthquake. The PM read a prepared statement - at times becoming a little emotional. He concluded his statement saying that a state of national emergency would be declared and he then answered questions. He said the death toll had now reached 75 and that 100s were missing possibly trapped. He thanked the international assistance and answered questions about the possible economic impacts of the quake. He said he felt it was likely that the CBD of Christchurch would be out of commission for some time and that this would have a much more serious impact on the economy of the city than the September earthquake.
