PM Luxon on Govt's nine key targets

From Morning Report, 7:51 am on 9 April 2024

The Government is pledging to meet nine key targets it has set for itself over the coming years.

The deliverables are aimed at improving outcomes in areas such as violent crime, youth offending, hospital stays and keeping kids in classes.

Prime Minister Christopher Luxon says the goals are deliberately ambitious, but critics have long argued that these sorts of targets can lead to unintended consequences.

Luxon spoke to Corin Dann.
