Out of touch Brownlee gets numbers wrong

Out of touch Brownlee gets numbers wrong

Gerry Brownlee has shown how badly he is managing the rebuild by getting his figures wrong on how many houses are needed in Christchurch, Labour’s EQC spokesperson Clayton Cosgrove says.

“Gerry Brownlee today tried to poor cold water on the figures from Phil Twyford and myself that showed CERA is thousands of homes behind in the rebuild. But he got it horribly wrong and forgot about thousands of families needing temporary housing.

“His statement claims just 1500 new homes are needed in Christchurch. But he ignored the 6000 homes needed in Christchurch alone to resolve earthquake relocation and temporary housing demand.

“If Mr Brownlee thinks Christchurch only needs 1500 houses when thousands were destroyed by the earthquakes he is out of touch,” says Clayton Cosgrove.
