Night Talk - Mitch Harris opening comments, Thursday 19th July 2018.

Tonight: do animal welfare laws need to be updated for rural areas? MPI is considering fining farmers and drivers up to $900 for a couple of new laws, one which includes having a dogs (or dogs) on the back of a ute.

Do you think this is a big issue? Should MPI be looking at new laws like this?

Also tonight: there are reports that Council rates are about to skyrocket in NZ. This includes a whopping 53% rise in Christchurch over next 10 years. 

How do you feel about the rates you pay, and would you be happy to pay more?
