Commission set to release interim quake report

8:57 pm on 10 October 2011

The Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission will publicly release its interim report on the rebuilding of Christchurch on Wednesday.

Prime Minister John Key says the report has been presented to Governor-General Lieutenant-General Sir Jerry Mateparae.

It includes interim recommendations that will help decision-making for rebuilding and repair work as part of the earthquake recovery effort.

It does not deal with specific buildings that caused loss of life.

A final report by the commission will be issued early next year.
