According to the ODT Botany MP Chris Luxon and now new National Party leader, owns seven properties across New Zealand – six in Auckland (two residential and four investment properties) and one residential property in Wellington.

Taxpayers are paying money towards two of the seven properties in the portfolio of National MP Christopher Luxon, who is among more than a dozen MPs that use Parliamentary accommodation allowances to effectively rent property from themselves.
