We go to where the weather is hitting the country hardest and an update from Metservice. Lawyer Sonja Cooper who has been representing victims of abuse in state care says she is concerned with the time frame the commission will look into. The Government wants to introduce a framework by 2019 that will look at wellbeing. The Government will consider how money will impact natural, social, human and possibly cultural capital too. Parliament voted 73 votes to 47. Zero support from National and NZ First. Even a few Labour MPs chose to vote against it.
