Ngāti Hinerangi Claims Settlement Bill First Reading

Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little today welcomed Ngāti Hinerangi to Parliament to witness the First Reading of the Ngāti Hinerangi Claims Settlement Bill.

“Today we celebrate the renewed relationship between Ngāti Hinerangi and the Crown which this settlement brings,” Andrew Little said.

“When the deed of settlement was signed in May at Te Ōhākī Marae, I thanked Ngāti Hinerangi for their perseverance and commitment to achieving a lasting settlement, and I continue this sentiment today”.

The Treaty settlement legislation provides Crown apology redress, including an agreed historical account and Crown acknowledgements of its historical breaches of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Ngāti Hinerangi will receive financial and commercial redress of $8.1 million, and cultural redress including 14 sites of traditional, historical and cultural significance to Ngāti Hinerangi. The settlement also includes redress related to the co-governance of the Upper-Waihou and Piako catchment, in recognition of Ngāti Hinerangi’s connection with the rivers.

When introducing the Ngāti Hinerangi Claims Settlement Bill to Parliament, Andrew Little said that “this settlement will go a long way towards Ngāti Hinerangi re-establishing connections with the various parts of their rohe, strengthening the identity of Ngāti Hinerangi as tangata whenua and lays the foundation for a stronger economic and cultural future for the future generations of Ngāti Hinerangi.”

Campbell on: the local body election result in Wellington

For obvious reasons, politics is more of a big deal in the capital city than anywhere else in the country. Even so, fewer than four in ten eligible voters bothered to vote in Saturday’s local body elections in Wellington (turnout 39.66%).

Even less was felt to be at stake this time around than in 2016, when 45% of the electorate voted Justin Lester into the mayoralty.

To put it mildly, the Lester-led Council failed to live up to expectations. Lester will be remembered mainly for the fact that somehow, he managed to lose this election. . More>>
