    Labour's leader continues to call the Government tax cuts poorly timed

    Labour's leader continues to call the Government tax cuts poorly timed


    The Government's pouring 14.7 billion dollars into it - and giving landlords a three-billion dollar boost.

    The tax changes kick in late July - against officials advising waiting until October.

    Chris Hipkins says 12 billion dollars has been borrowed to fund the cuts.

    He says he agrees tax brackets need adjusting - you have to carefully choose when it's done.

    Hipkins says this is the worst time to do it - with inflation high and Government revenue declining because of the economic downturn.
