    Labour's leader is warning the Government it shouldn't dump a grant for first home buyers

    Labour's leader is warning the Government it shouldn't dump a grant for first home buyers


    An inquiry led by former PM, Sir Bill English, has found Kainga Ora needs to find significant savings to be financially viable.

    The Housing Minister says every programme the the state housing provider runs will be checked for cost value.

    Chris Bishop won't rule out dropping first home buyer grants.

    Chris Hipkins says it would be the wrong move.

    He says the scheme is a modest contribution to people being able to buy a first home, and is not a big chunk of money in the budget process.
