Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey has welcomed news of an extra $1 billion commitment from Budget 2015 to Canterbury earthquake recovery.

Government’s commitment will now reach $16.5bn, up from $15.4bn from last year.

“We’ve celebrated some positive milestones and seen the rebuild of many of our key community facilities in Waimakariri but we still have work to do. This additional commitment to Canterbury earthquake recovery consisting of an additional $107.8 million operating funding over the next four years is very welcome.

“I am looking forward to being part of the National-led Government that is rebuilding a strong Canterbury,” Doocey said.
