    Tread carefully over plans to extend earthquake-strengthening work deadlines

    Tread carefully over plans to extend earthquake-strengthening work deadlines

    The Government's announced it's giving people an extra four years to get unsafe buildings up to scratch.

    It's also bringing forward a review into earthquake-prone buildings.

    He says this inevitably mixes politics with public safety considerations.
