Quakes, GFC slowing efforts to close inequality gap - Bennet

On The AM Show Paula Bennett says the Government's efforts to close the gaps between the rich and poor have been stymied by the Christchurch earthquakes and the global financial crisis.

Under questioning about National's efforts over the past nine years, Ms Bennett told The AM Show said there was "no doubt" people were still struggling, but the exact gap depends on "which way you cut it and how you kind of look at it".
