    Hopes the Earthquake Commission Amendment Bill would have gone further

    Hopes the Earthquake Commission Amendment Bill would have gone further

    The bill which aims to simplify and speed up the EQC claims process passed its third reading last night.

    National supported the bill, but expressed disappointment it didn't include a number of submissions - including its call for people to be allowed to immediately file claims with private insurers.

    Wairarapa MP Alastair Scott sees this as a missed opportunity.

    He says we now have to wait for the independent review of the EQC, before getting to the meat of what needs to be done.
