Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee says the Government is working hard to ensure good results for the residents affected by the earthquake in the Canterbury region.
Some locals are frustrated not enough information is available.
The Government has introduced emergency legislation to give special powers to the Earthquake Recovery Minister to deal with the effects of the quake.
The minister, Gerry Brownlee, told Morning Report he understands people's frustration, but that there's a process to go through to make sure there are good results, not shonky repairs.
Mr Brownlee says he does not want anyone to be in a position of uncertainty.
