The Panel with David Slack and Penny Ashton (Part 1)
Topics - President Xi of China raised with John Key the issue of getting back to China people who've escaped that country with dirty money, money from fraud and corruption. We hasten to add that a huge amount of clean money arrives in NZ from China in the company of perfectly respectable individuals as well. Chinese buying up our land and houses is back as a topic. We've asked many experts over the past couple of years about how much property is owned by foreigners who live elsewhere, or are coming here to snap up property and we've only ever received anecdotal answers. Parliament's speaker David Carter has announced there will be no change to the words of the daily prayer.
