Great to see National is going to deliver housing assistance to all low income New Zealanders, and gradually remove the discrimination against low income people who have a private sector landlord.
Labour’s policies have led to a huge 12,000 waiting list for state houses, as they deliver more assistance to you if the Government is your landlord.
Also pleasing to see incentives for state house tenants to buy their state homes. Labour calls this privatisation – helping state house tenants purchase the home they have lived in for years. And the money from any sales will go towards buying and more houses so the level stays fairly constant.
