From First Up, 5:45 am on 5 May 2021

The Finance Minister has found nearly a billion dollars of unspent Covid-19 relief fund money which will be dished out in the government's "recovery budget" later this month. In his pre-budget speech yesterday, Grant Robertson also announced the establishment of a new team - led by him - to ensure every cent is spent wisely. Joining Nathan Rarere to discuss this and much more is Infometrics economist Brad Olsen.
