Fletcher CEO denies responsibility for botched quake repairs

Newshub's Patrick Gower reports Fletcher Building CEO Ross Taylor denies his company's partly responsible for botched earthquake repairs.

The Government is getting legal advice on whether it can sue Fletcher Building for damages over the potential billion dollar cost blowout on Christchurch earthquake repairs.

Ross Taylor, chief executive of Fletcher Building, has denied that his company has any moral responsibility for the botched repairs.

EQC chief executive Sid Miller last week publicly apologised to everyone affected, but Fletcher has no intention of doing the same.

You’re asking us to apologise for something we don’t have any responsibility for
— Mr Taylor told Newshub
