Wrongfully evicted families to have their related debt wiped
17 April 2019
The Green Party is welcoming moves to wipe the debts related to wrongful eviction due to meth contamination for families from their HousingNZ home.
“Families wrongly evicted by the National Government are getting some justice today,” Green Party Co-leader Marama Davidson said today.
“Families wrongly evicted needed emergency housing otherwise they would have been homeless. Families that were evicted needed things like new school uniforms because their children had to move school. Families have been paying that money back ever since, all based off their wrongful eviction in the first place.
“The beat up of poor families under the previous government was a disgrace and we are still awaiting an apology from the Minister involved under the previous Government.
“I am pleased to be part of a Government that recognises the unnecessary pain and suffering that being wrongfully evicted has on a family,” Marama Davidson says.
