Prisons: Turia Accuses Corrections Of Political Correctness

Tariana Turia today expressed concern at yet more Government cuts to Maori services. Mrs Turia was alarmed to learn the Department of Corrections has pulled the majority of programmes outlined in the strategy to "include and engage Maori whanau and hapu". "The Department seems to have been spending all their time on an elaborate branding exercise to dream up Maori names for their prisons, while at the same time sacrificing real projects that could assist whanau and hapu in supporting Maori inmates." See... "Prison Priorities All Wrong" [1]
