Housing Minister Phil Twyford has once again failed to credit the National Party for his latest plagiarised announcement of thermal upgrades for homes in the Hutt Valley, National’s Housing spokesperson Judith Collins says.
“In July last year, the National Government announced Housing New Zealand would retrofit 383 homes with new kitchen and bathroom upgrades, insulation, and new heating to help bring them up to modern standards.
“This was part of a wider significant project to build and refurbish over 700 homes in the Hutt Valley.
“Mr Twyford is consistently re-announcing National Government initiatives under the Labour-led Government banner, and today he’s doing it again.
“It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the Minister has realised National’s comprehensive housing plan was on the right track, and he is now pinching it and re-badging it as his own.”
