'Smoke and mirrors': Hipkins responds to National's tax policy

Prime Minister Chris Hipkins has described National’s tax policy as “smoke and mirrors” ahead of the party’s announcement this morning. 

Under National’s plan, a household earning $120,000 a year with no children will receive up to $100 a fortnight, the document shows, while an “average” household with children will get up to $250 a fortnight. 

Hipkins told Newstalk ZB Wellington Mornings’ Nick Mills that he will be keeping an open mind on National’s tax policy. 

“There appears to be quite a lot of smoke and mirrors in what they’re talking about,” he said.
