Mauri Pacific Reserves Position On Forestry Amendment Act
Mauri Pacific would reluctantly support the Forestry Amendment Act going to select committee its leader, Hon Tau Henare, said today.
"We are going to reserve our decision on whether we support this legislation until after a meeting is held of SILNA landowners in Christchurch at the end of the month," he said.
"We have reservations about SILNA landowners treaty rights and would want to be quite sure that they are behind this legislation. If not, then we won't be supporting it."
