Nicola Willis wants list of unfunded policies during Government handovers

From Morning Report, 7:52 am on 5 December 2023

The new Finance Minister wants to change the law to force governments to publish a list of policies they've left unfunded, ahead of every election.

Nicola Willis says Labour left many essential programmes without long-term funding as a way of masking the true state of the finances.

Labour's Grant Robertson is dismissing the accusations and says the information Nicola Willis wants collated is released annually in the Budget.

Political reporter Katie Scotcher has the story.
