The prime minister has asked Crown Law to investigate if civil proceedings could be taken against a number of parties associated with the Pike River mine explosion in which 29 men died.

He made the announcement after Solid Energy confirmed it would not re-enter the mine to recover the bodies because in its view the risk of further deaths would be too high.

NZME reports John Key said that if Crown Law found civil proceedings could be taken, the Government would fund the proceedings.

Meanwhile, Radio New Zealand's Morning Report discussed the chances civil proceedings going ahead.
