Luxton, Housing Minister for the then newly elected National Government, outlines the New Zealand government's stance and strategic plans regarding housing and accommodation, with a focus on accommodation assistance.

It is particularly valuable for understanding the policy landscape of New Zealand in the early 1990s, a pivotal time in housing as the government enacted a wide range of policy changes including adding a profit imperative to the Housing Corporation, selling off the mortgage portfolio, introducing market rents for state housing, selling state housing stock, drastically reducing state housing construction, and the creation of the Accommodation Supplement, the main focus of this work. This policy paper is the government’s means of justifying the transition to the Accommodation Supplement.
