Labour and National go head to head over KiwiBuildby Jane Patterson
Housing minister Phil Twyford and National's Judith Collins have gone head to head in Parliament over the affordability of houses to be built under the government's flagship policy, KiwiBuild.
Last week the government raised the maximum price for a three bedroom home in Auckland and Queenstown by $50,000, up to $650,000. It was done due to rising land prices and building costs.
Ms Collins asked whether there would be an income limit on people who would be able to purchase a Kiwibuild home.
In response, Mr Twyford said there was not one at present because Cabinet was still deciding on the exact rules.
Ms Collins asked him about an example of a New Zealand-born couple returning home from living overseas.
