He nui ngā tāngata i te hiahia whare pāpori i Tāmaki Makaurau, engari hore kau ngā kainga, he roa rawa hoki ngā rārangi tatari. Nā reira, kei te tuku atu Te Manatū Whakahiato Ora he rua mano he toru mano taara rānei ki ngā tāngata i te hiahia neke ki waho o Tāmaki Makaurau, ka utu hoki rātou i te utu neke kainga.
Tata ki te hawhe o ngā tāngata 4585 i te rehita mō ngā whare pāpori e noho ana ki Tāmaki Makaurau, otira, ka whiwhi pūtea rātou mēnā ka neke rātou ki waho o Tāmaki.
Hei tā te heamana o te Roopu a Iwi Trust, a Maureen Mua, “I think it's just a knee-jerk reaction for the amount of pressure that the minister is receiving at the moment because of all the homelessness and honestly I don't think it's going to work.”
Ka whiwhi rātou i te rima mano taara kia neke whare, ka tāea hoki e rātou te whiwhi:
E rua mano taara ki te neke rātou ki te kainga motuhake.
E toru mano taara ki te neke ki te whare pāpori.
Kei te tautoko a Henare O'Keefe te heamana a U-Turn Trust ki ngā tāngata hiahia wehe atu i Tāmaki Makaurau, engari me tāea ai e rātou ngā ratonga hapori ka tika.
E ai O'Keefe, “I expect the government to be more creative and more benevolent than that, well it's all our problem isn't it because if we don't address it we're all going to inherit that problem generations to come.”
He nui ake ngā tāngata i ngā rehita mō ngā whare pāpori ki Te Matau a Māui, Kirikiriroa, Tauranga me Whangarei, ko tā Mua, horekau he kainga mā rātou.
“It's not an awful lot of money either they would need to purchase uniforms, set everything up including their children in schools, that's an awful lot of money.”
Ka tā te Minita Paula Bennett, he mea pai tēnei mā rātou ki te hiahia whiwhi i taua pūtea.
