$1b fund - housing crisis solution?

The Government has announced it will open up a $1 billion infrastructure fund, to help councils speed up building houses.

The fund will be open to councils in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Christchurch and Queenstown.

But it is just a loan.

Is this the solution to the housing crisis?

Housing Minister Nick Smith spoke to Paul Henry.
