KiwiBuild: Twyford cannot guarantee 1000 homes target by July

From Morning Report, 7:43 am on 23 January 2019

The government is under pressure to make a significant dent in the housing shortage this year. This week a report found New Zealand is one of the most unaffordable countries in the world to buy a house, with the average price more than six times the median household income. More than six months into KiwiBuild, only 33 homes have been built - well short of the 1000 target for its first year. Phil Twyford is the Minister of Housing and Urban Development.
