Cam on The Cauldron at 16:00 on Newstalk ZB – [UPDATED]

[UPDATE]
ZB tell me Cam is not going to feature on the Cauldron today. Cam told me he is. Apart from the foibles of trying to run a media organisation from my bedroom and control a Type-A personality that’s now probably in a Kava induced coma, let’s all get together and see what is actually going to happen – Pete

The Huddle

newstalkzb

I was on the Huddle last night with Larry Williams and Bill Ralston.

Our topics were:

Law Commission/ Joint Liability report.

Some relief could be coming the way of local councils and their legal liabilities in matters such as leaky building syndrome.

The Law Commission is recommending modifications to joint liability laws that would effectively cap their liabilities in building negligence claims.

Under the proposals, caps would be set at 300 thousand dollars for a single dwelling, 150 thousand dollars per unit for residences in a multi-unit complex, and a three million dollar cap per multi-unit developments.

The recommendations will have to be considered by the Government.

Home Owners and Buyers Association president John Gray says that will leave consumers in the dark. He says leaky homes are still being built, and when the building industry comes under pressure to build more homes the same problems are likely to be repeated. He says there should be a mandatory insurance-backed warranty behind the auditing process of local authorities, so it never reaches court.

Local Government New Zealand president Lawrence Yule says the proposals would still see councils facing a disproportionate share of the costs, and the risks. He says if the Government wants councils to make the building consent process faster and cheaper, it needs to reduce the risks that councils face. ¬† Read more »

The Cauldron at 1600

I am on The Cauldron again at 1600.

Join Larry Williams, Josie Pagani, Jordan Williams and me on The Cauldron.

Here are our starters:

1) Lui – Donghua Lui whose links to the National Party led to a minister’s resignation, also made a secret $15,000 donation to Labour.

2) Owen Glenn Report

3) Epsom – Looks pretty clear that National will do a deal with Act on Epsom

4) The Internet Mana Party is campaigning against coat tailing

5) Iraq – The government isn’t ruling out the possibility of standing by the US if military intervention is required in Iraq – but the PM is saying — a request unlikely and its not a place where NZ wants to be.

6) Team NZ – There’s doubt from some as to whether Team New Zealand delivers enough return, to justify government investment. The team is now chasing sponsors to back its next challenge, but has warned it might not stay afloat past the end of the month without a government cash injection.

7) McCready & police – Serial litigant Graeme McCready plans to take police to court for not acting on John Banks.
