Maori Party may quit government

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water...

The Minister for State Owned Enterprises, Tony Ryall, says provisions protecting land under Treaty claims would still apply. However, Section 9 is under review...

What's Section 9 I hear you ask?

9. Treaty of Waitangi
  • Nothing in this Act shall permit the Crown to act in a manner that is inconsistent with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

    Oh dear. They wouldn't ignore Maori concerns again. 

    Would they?
