The new government's focus

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:15 pm on 25 October 2017

Incoming Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern today announced the country's new government ministers.

Two new key roles were announced, Crown/Maori relations and Child poverty reduction. 

Ms Ardern will take on the latter role herself, so will that see an improvement in New Zealand's poverty numbers?

We speak to Susan St John from the Child Poverty Action Group.
