Early release of TOKM submissions

Maori Affairs Committee : Early release of TOKM submissions

16 May 2002

Media release -


Inquiry into Te Ohu Kai Moana (Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission) - early release of submissions

Last October Parliament's Maori Affairs Committee called for public submissions on its inquiry into the Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission (Te Ohu Kai Moana).

Submissions to a parliamentary committee remain confidential to the committee until they are released by the committee or the submitter speaks to their submission before the committee.

Unfortunately it appears that some parties may have obtained copies of submissions without them being released by the committee. This is regrettable. In order to put all participants on an equal footing, the committee today has resolved to release all submissions under Standing Order 224.

The inquiry has the following terms of reference:

1. the matters currently preventing the allocation of fishing assets and how can they be resolved
2. the methodology for allocating leasehold rights to fishing assets from 1989-2000
3. the leasehold resources allocated to organisations representing Iwi
4. the individuals who were deemed to be representing Iwi
5. what these individuals were doing prior to obtaining Iwi fisheries negotiating rights
6. how these people were appointed and remunerated
7. the outcome for Iwi after 10 years of access to fishing assets
8. the role of Commissioners and their remuneration
9. the systems that led to Commissioners being contracted by the Commission as consultants
