Prime Minister John Key walked out of his weekly post-cabinet press conference today before fully answering a question from a journalist about his proposed GCSB bill.

He appeared to get a little frustrated near the end of the press conference after a series of questions being asked.

"Is this a question, buddy? Because I tell you what - hold on there, well , I'll give you the answer. Here's the answer – no, I know what the question is."

The journalist interjects and with a smile, Mr Key looks down at the papers on his lectern and replies: "Thanks very much, guys" and leaves the press conference.

Mr Key was fielding questions to clarify his GCSB and Related Legislation Bill. The bill will go through its final reading this week and is expected to pass by one vote.
