Ngāti Hine opposes Govt's COVID19 Recovery Bill

By Te Ao - Māori News

Ngā Tirairaka o Ngāti Hine has opposed the Government's proposed COVID-19 Recovery Bill 2020 which they believe only intends to enable fast-track consenting of shovel-ready projects. 

The group says the proposed COVID-19 Recovery Bill 2020 is yet another instance whereby the New Zealand Government, through legislative changes, continues to undermine the intent and mana of Te Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Niu Tireni and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, New Zealand's founding documents.
