QUICK READ: On 11 October 2013, co-hosting a parliamentary breakfast with the Green Party, Labour MP Jacinda Ardern called for a cross party approach to ending homelessness by 2020. A decade later, homelessness is five times worse than 2013, and three times worse than when Jacinda became Prime Minister with cross party support of Greens. The most affordable, most immediate option to end homelessness without committing land are mobile homes, but in June 2020 the government advised a manufacturer of mobile trailer homes that mobile homes are not an option currently being pursued by Government. This explains the shift to hostile treatment of the industry by MBIE, HUD, MSD, MFE and even NZTA. Why Government made this shift in policy is yet unclear, but it seems madness given the homeless crisis.
