Govt to end state housing relocation grants

From Morning Report, 7:33 am on 19 December 2017

The government will stop giving people living in state houses money to move out of Auckland. The previous government offered up to $5000 to encourage people to leave the city and free up social housing. Minister for Housing Phil Twyford tells us it's not credible to pay people to leave a city and he's focused on building more state houses in Auckland.
