'We're trying to facilitate supply' - KiwiBuild delivery boss

From Morning Report, 8:09 am on 11 June 2019

National's housing spokesperson Judith Collins has called the government's KiwiBuild scheme a "dog" and questions how some people able to raise $650,000 for a deposit are allowed to qualify for the affordable housing.

According to the Housing Ministry figures given to RNZ, that's the situation for three people who've been given pre-approval to be part of the scheme.

Helen O'Sullivan is the head of delivery for KiwiBuild. She joins Corin Dann in the studio with her response.
