    The Finance Minister's leaving the door open for extending a new cost of living payment

    The Finance Minister's leaving the door open for extending a new cost of living payment


    Grant Robertson's flagship Budget announcement was a a 350-dollar payment to Kiwis on low and middle incomes... paid over three months from August.

    But he's not ruling out extending the policy.... and says he'll cross that bridge when he comes to it.

    He says he's learned during Covid that you have to expect the unexpected, and to be flexible.
