Land rights could potentially be stripped under new legislation…

Hundreds and thousands of people will be affected by the Housing Legislation Amendment Bill being rushed through parliament. Green Party leader Metiria Turei says those who have rights to lands being taken under the Public Works may not have those rights anymore.

Metiria Turei says, “We are dealing with this bill in urgency, so there will be most if not all of those who have had this offer-back right for land that was gifted to the Crown by them or taken by them those people don’t know that this right is being taken from them.”

The Housing Legislation Amendment Bill is under urgency in an attempt to combat New Zealand’s housing shortage.
