Poll: Is $12m for a hardship fund for businesses affected by CRL a good use of taxpayer money?

Danielle Clent Reporter from Central Leader

The fund was announced by Transport Minister Michael Wood and mayor Phil Goff on Friday morning, and while it was welcomed by the city’s business association, it said it was “long overdue”.
