Q+A: Prime Minister John Key interviewed by Corin Dann
Prime Minister John Key admits homelessness has risen on his watch.
"Do you accept homelessness has risen on your watch?" ONE News Political Editor Corin Dann asked on TV One’s Q+A programme. Mr Key agreed, but also defended his government.
"Yes, there are more people but equally we are also implementing a very significant plan," he said.
"There's no question that if house prices rise and if pressure goes on rents it has a significant impact on those most marginalised, not just those who are homeless."
'Winning ugly is better than losing tidy' – John Key on the Australian election.
The outcome of Australia's election is important for New Zealand, and on the basis that the Coalition get there Malcolm Turnbull's biggest challenge is not election night, but about getting on and delivering results, says Prime Minister John Key.
"We need Australia over the next three years to be a strong and vibrant economy, they're our biggest trading partner, it's important to us,"
