National’s housing timebomb detailed in damning paper – MSN

The Housing Minister has been delivered a stark message by Government Ministries: the high cost of housing is a drain on health, education, employment, homelessness, productivity, is causing wealth inequality and increasing the cost of Government services.

The damning nature of the report has the former Housing Minister suspicious. Dr Nick Smith said “it’s quite clear” the briefing was redrafted since the new Government formed.

According  to the briefing, demand for state or social housing is “increasing rapidly”, and that increase is driven “significantly” by a shortage of affordable homes.
