The Nation 31/5/14: Housing, Laila Harre, Greens AGM
This week on The Nation… as housing issues again dominate the headlines, we ask: is the New Zealand quarter acre dream dead? And how many affordable houses are being built in Auckland? Our reporter Lucy Warhurst takes a look at the overheated housing market and the efforts to cool it down. Then Lisa Owen interviews Housing Minister Nick Smith about the progress of the housing accords, and get Labour’s take from its spokesperson Phil Twyford.
The Mana-Dotcom deal is on, and we’ll speak to The Internet Party’s new leader Laila Harre. What’s the game plan?
And 3News political reporter Brook Sabin will provide an update live from the Green Party AGM.
We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: RadioLive host Duncan Garner, former Labour Party president Mike Williams, and Banker’s Association chief executive Kirk Hope.
The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.
