Non-English speakers need more support for Covid-19 advice - Shane Reti

From First Up, 5:45 am on 4 March 2021

The deputy leader of the National Party Shane Reti says that people whose first language is English would struggle to understand the Government's Covid-19 advice, let alone someone for whom it's their second. We're very pleased to let you know that both Dr Reti and his Labour Party counterpant, Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson, will be speaking with First Up every week from now on. When Nathan Rarere spoke with Dr Reti, he told him the government's messages need to be simplified.
