Phil Twyford’s plan for a new Ministry is a woeful response to the housing crisis says the New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union.
Taxpayers’ Union Executive Director, Jordan Williams, says “Government is the problem, not the solution. Phil Twyford should focus on opening up land supply and reforming the RMA to make it easier for the private market to build new homes.”
“According to forecasts from Treasury and
MBIE, KiwiBuild is expected to hollow out private sector
construction. Why would the Minister double down on even
more government intervention?”
