The terror attacks at two mosques on 15 March left 50 people dead.

The lead investigator and duration of the independent probe had yet to be decided, she said, adding that she understands the public is demanding answers "but we equally have to allow the inquiry the time to do the job properly".

Ardern said such an inquiry was an appropriate response to the attack but declined to give a timeframe while her government finalised the terms of reference.
