Wellingtonians on Government, Reserve Bank stoush

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 25 November 2020

Finance Minister Grant Robertson wants the Reserve Bank to tell him if house price stability should be a bigger part of the bank's thinking.

Reserve Bank Governor Adrian Orr says he'll get back to Roberston on that, noting sharply in his response that property values are already on his team's mind.

RNZ's Hamish Cardwell asked people in Wellington whether the government is now finally taking action on rampant prices or simply shifting responsibility.
