Andrew Little, the minister responsible for Pike River, says manned re-entry to the mine is a dangerous task and won't be attempted til at least 2019, if ever. The government still believes it's possible to go back into the mine and see if there are any human remains of the 29 men that were killed in the blast of 2010. The panellists weigh in on whether this effort is showing support for the families or if it will actually eventuate.
