From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 22 January 2021

Community Housing groups are left wanting more from the government's new public housing plan.

The plan released yesterday re-commits to building 8,000 new state houses in the next four years.

But these houses were already promised in the 2019 government budget.

Scott Figenshow is the Chief Executive of Community Housing Aotearoa and Bernie Smith is the Chief Executive of Monte Cecilia Housing Trust.
