    A former boss of the Earthquake Commission thinks its liability cap should be lifted significantly

    A former boss of the Earthquake Commission thinks its liability cap should be lifted significantly



    From the start of July, EQC's cap is increasing to 150-thousand dollars.

    But former chief executive David Middleton has told an insurance forum in Wellington it should increase to 400-thousand dollars.

    He says with New Zealand being a small country, we're all in this together when disaster happens.
