From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 29 July 2022

Court cases looking into the way donations are made to political parties have exposed New Zealand's laissez faire laws, according to an associate law professor.

Tim Kuhner from Auckland University says the past two weeks have started to reveal the true nature of political donations in this country.

While the Government is considering how to close the loophole allowing undeclared political donations, he says it would only scrape the surface of what's needed.

Kuhner spoke to Susie Ferguson.
