In CHA’s media release CHA Director, Scott Figenshow, says today’s announcement will provide a much needed boost to the reforms.

He added that the announcement also shows that the government is listening to the sector’s views, with Dr. Smith specifically referring to the ‘A way forward for stock transfers’ report that was jointly prepared by the Network, CHA and Te Matapihi.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the development of the report and the meeting with MBIE and Treasury officials in Wellington.
