Poll: Should landlords supply heating?

Denise Piper Reporter from Western Leader

A community advocate says Healthy Homes heating standards can't come in soon enough after the Tenancy Tribunal ruled landlords only have to provide a power point to meet heating requirements in the north. What do you think - should landlords supply heating, even when it is not legally required?

Name and Shame....then fine $$$$.

David from Glen Eden

Obey just a few simple rules and we'd be fairly safe. As it is just one or two selfish people with either little intelligence and/or no respect for anyone go spreading the bug. They have no excuse and we should not be protecting their names with numbers. Anyone who deliberately ignores the simple rules should be named and shamed AND fined. Heavy fines were applied in Taiwan for just not wearing a mask. If self discipline is lacking it should be enforced. We are too darned soft. We are now in danger of going to lock down 4 and even becoming a little America and just because of a few who couldn't care.
