Housing a liabilty for iwi
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says iwi should be wary of any attempt to push them into becoming social housing providers.
Prime Minister John Key yesterday unveiled his plans to create non-state providers of social housing by selling state houses cheap to agencies like the Salvation Army.
This would be backed up by extending rental subsidies now only available to state house tenants.
Mr Peters says it can be difficult to be a landlord to your own people, especially in times of high unemployment.
Winston Peters says it’s a national disaster when more than half of young people don’t expect to ever own a home.
