Children in poverty

From The Panel, 4:16 pm on 15 December 2017

The Prime Minister Jainda Ardern says the Government's new families package will reduce child poverty in the country by 48 per cent. We ask the panellists whether this is realistic or if there are other, more entrenched impediments to lowering poverty in New Zealand. The panellists also discuss the state of the books, and discuss if they worry about national debt increasing, as the opposition has warned.
