Submissions to the public inquiry close on Sunday with about 600 received to date and more expected this week.

Inquiry chairwoman Dame Silvia Cartwright said people so far have been asking for more empathy and transparency from EQC. They also wanted relevant expertise, quality assurance for assessments and repairs, and faster progress on claims.
