The Pike River mine explosion inquiry

Flame and smoke billow from the Pike River coal mine, near Greymouth. In November 2010, 29 miners died after two methane explosions and a fire in the mine. In this sound file, Prime Minister John Key announces a royal commission of inquiry into the tragedy. Commissions of inquiry are one way of dealing with public concern following such disasters.
