EQC was 'doomed to fail' minister says - were you affected?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

The Earthquake Commission was doomed to fail following the Canterbury earthquakes because of a lack of planning, resourcing and expertise, EQC Minister Grant Robertson says.

New legislation will be introduced next year to modernise Earthquake Commission (EQC) laws to prevent communities suffering “years of trauma and uncertainty” following a natural disaster, the Government says.
