Right to repair in NZ

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 9:05 am on 16 January 2019

Yesterday we had a chat to Libby Peake from the UK's Green Alliance about the Right to Repair Movement - a series of legislative proposals in Europe and the USA which would force manufacturers to make more easily-repaired and longer-lasting consumer products. 

We got a heap of feedback on that story - so we thought we'd invite Consumer NZ onto the programme to talk a bit about consumer rights here, and whether New Zealand could use such legislation itself. We're joined now by Consumer NZ's head of research Jessica Wilson.
