No conflict of interest in receiving petition to strip Labour donor of knighthood - PM

He rua tekau ma rima mano tāra te pūtea tautoko i tukuna atu e tētahi pakihi a Tā Bob Jones ki a Reipa i tēra tau. Engari e toru marama ki muri i tau tētahi petihana ki a Kiritapu Allan o Reipa, kia tangohia te taitara Tā i a Jones whai muri i tāna tuhinga mautohe mō Ngai Māori. E ai ki te Pirimia, kaore he pānga hē o tā Bob Jones tuku koha.

Ko tā te Pirimia a Jacinda Ardern kaore he raru ki te whiwhi petihana kia tangotia te taitara o tētahi kautuku pūtea o Reipa.

"We receive petitions all the time and I encourage members of the public to use one of what is our democratic tools we've already said while I did not particularly agree with the statements that he had made the threshold for removing knighthoods is a very high one."

I te marama o Poutu te Rangi i tuku a Renae Maihi i tāna petihana he ono tekau ma waru mano nga waitohu ki paremata ki a Kiritapu Allan. Ko tā Allan he tika kia taea te tangata te tuku petihana ki te Kāwanatanga.

Ko tā Maihi kōrero i taua wā "it is very important that Aotearoa and NZ take these words seriously and take the impact of racism seriously because it does impact poeple in their daily lives."

I tēra tau he rua tekau ma rima mano te pūtea tautoko i tuku e Tirohanga Holdings Limited ki a Reipa. Ki te rārangi Tumuaki a Robert Jones, ā, he orite te wāhi tū a te kamupene i tēra o Robert Jones Holdings ko reira te tūnga o Tā Jones hei Heamana.

Ko tā Ardern kore rawa tēnei āhuatanga he mahi hē.

“I would probably be more defensive against the statements if it was."

Ko ta te Kaiarahi o Nāhinara he ahuatanga ohorere ēngari ahakoa te rorirori a ngā kōrero a ētahi he mana kōrero tā te katoa.

"I think it's suprising. They're giving or taking with one hand and potentially criticising on the other."

Mai te tukunga a Renae Maihi i te petihana kua tau te tono a Taa Jones ki mua i te aroaro o te kooti teitei mo te hamene heitara i whiua ki runga i a ia. Kaore ano a Tā Jones a Maihi kia whakahoki kōrero mai.
