From First Up, 5:49 am on 5 September 2023

To politics now, and it's looking like it'll be a feisty few weeks, with Labour and National launching their campaigns officially at the weekend. There's already been some intense scrutiny of National's tax plan, which aims to fund tax cuts by selling expensive homes to foreign buyers. Yesterday the party promised to bring in international expertise to fast-track land damage assessments in the wake of Cyclone Gabrielle and other flooding in the North Island. Nicola Willis told Nathan Rarere why we also need a recovery Ombudsman to focus on assessing damaged properties.
