New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters has offered himself to be the first to re-enter the Pike River Mine where 29 miners died back in 2010.
Peters told families at Parliament he's read the safety reports and he's willing to go in.
British mining expert David Creedy wrote the report and has a plan to re-enter the drift. He says there is no risk to lives.
When asked if he would go in himself, he answered: "I would be quite prepared to go in because I believe all the risks can be satisfactorily controlled."
Mr Creedy says hazards can be controlled and there would be no difficulty beyond normal mining practice to inspect the drift.
He says they can only make decisions what is possible beyond there once they reach the end of the drift.
Story caught up with the expert about how dangerous his plan really is.
