Closing remarks from Bishop Justin Duckworth:

“[Hon Alfred Ngaro] you made a really good point that the answers are not [over the road at Parliament,] they’re here.  They are here – they are in this room and we’re living those answers regularly.  But we do need a little bit of help.  … here’s some things we would like.  We would like affordable housing for New Zealanders, number one.  We would like increased social housing stocks, number two.  And we would like rental properties fit for people to actually live in and prosper their lives in.  That’s the stuff we need your help on.”
