The iconic Bunnings sausage is undergoing a change for safety reasons

Not a sausage in sight. Ms Ardern and Mr Morrison had an animated meeting

For health and safety reasons, those assembling a fundraising snack in a Bunnings carpark can no longer layer the sausage on the bread, then the onion, with sauce on top.

We head on over for a snag, snuggled in some bread and topped with sauce and onions, and our day seems ideal.

The news also drew the attention of New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who described it as the "most pressing global or trans-Tasman news of the day".

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has weighed in on the sausage sizzle saga to lightly grill Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on the topic.

She said: "I think we should make a joint commitment that on our watches, the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle shall continue".

But Ms Ardern later indicated she would raise the issue when she meets the Australian prime minister again in coming weeks.

He said: "Whether the onions are on top or underneath, I'll always be buying sausages on bread, whether it's at the football, whether it's at Bunnings or anywhere I can assist those great charitable causes".

"Thirty minutes probably wasn't enough", she told reporters in Singapore.

Fears remain that refugees will use the pathway as a "back door" to enter Australia.

About 30 asylum seeker children remain on Nauru.

The summit is expected to support plans for a broad based trade deal - the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) - which would combine the 10 members of the Association of South East Asian Nations and the six countries, including New Zealand, with whom the group has free trade deals.

Ms Ardern has consistently argued Australia should deport only those with genuine links to New Zealand.
