Brian Dawson: making social housing tenants prove they qualify

From Sunday Morning, 7:26 am on 17 December 2017

Wellington City Council is coming down hard on people in its social housing who can afford market rates. They've been sent a letter telling them to provide three months worth of bank statements or they face eviction. That's enraged at least one tenant, who says the council has enough of his private financial information and he's refusing to give it the bank statements. Lambton Ward councillor Brian Dawson explains why.
