But the Minister said the proposition is still being considered, and the City Rail Link company, which is owned by the government and Auckland Council, might take over shop leases during construction to ease the burden. Albert Street business owners held bouquets of flowers this morning, addressed to the politicians who could help them save their dying businesses.
This businesswoman carried a message for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. One said the morning felt like a funeral, standing at the graves of what were once their thriving livelihoods.
The businesspeople say firms have had to shut up shop. Mr Walters said the disruption has been sustained and almost door-to-door, and the government must realise long-term construction causes losses for businesses.

He said under the Public Works Act usually it's only land purchases that are paid out, rather than disruption to business. He said he thinks the government is worried that paying any money out for business disruption would create a precedent, and other claims may follow. If you're going to do that, then you're going to cause people to incur loss, and you should compensate them for that.
Transport Minister Phil Twyford said a hardship fund proposal is being considered as part of a wider policy on how they can help businesses affected by infrastructure projects.

Mr Walters said that practical assistance seemed to be erecting wayfinding signage, which does little, and that taking over leases was news to him. Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said: "I am in favour of a targeted hardship fund and have put that case to the Minister.

Mothers and babies are amongst the most highly vulnerable in Yemen. Every two hours, one mother and six newborns die because of complications during pregnancy or birth. Essential public services, including healthcare crucial to support mothers and childbirth, are on the brink of total collapse.
Philanthropy in the War Zone
Only 51 per cent of all health facilities are fully functional, and even these face severe shortages in medicines, equipment, and staff. In a country profoundly affected by the humanitarian crisis, delivery of routine primary healthcare services has also been overshadowed by the urgency of responding to the cholera epidemic and starvation. This leaves pregnant women and newborns with limited access to a broader range of maternal and child health services, including antenatal and emergency obstetric and neonatal care. They reported that because families are getting poorer by the day, an increasing number of women are opting to have their babies at home, and only seek medical care if they experience complications.
