From Checkpoint, 5:46 pm on 13 September 2021

The building and construction sector has just a few days worth of some Auckland-based products left.

Last week the government gave seven-day exemptions to eight Auckland businesses providing 'critical' products for residential housing construction.

But just ninety-nine workers were allowed back to those sites overall.

RNZ reporter Sam Olley has the story.
