Auditor-General to investigate Kiwibuild

News 16/07/2019

The Auditor-General will investigate a KiwiBuild scheme in which the Government would either purchase unsold houses from developers or top up any shortfall. 

The Auditor-General John Ryan confirmed the investigation in a letter to National MP and Housing spokesperson Judith Collins, who raised the issue with his office.

Collins joins Magic Talk Drive with guest host Brendan Telfer to discuss.

Collins raised concerns with the Auditor-General about the Government's "suspicious-looking deal" to underwrite houses already under construction in Canterbury and Auckland.
