The Māori Party co-leader says the National Party should go back to school if it thinks including te reo Māori on road signs is confusing.

In a transport meeting yesterday in Bay of Plenty, National's spokesperson Simeon Brown said introducing the language to road signs would make them "more confusing" and they "should all be English".

On Monday, Waka Kotahi said its He Tohu Huarahi Māori Bilingual Traffic Signs programme was going out for public consultation.
