Te Ohu Kai Moana Expresses Reservations About 4th Schedule

Press Release

31 March 2000

TE OHU KAI MOANA EXPRESSES RESERVATIONS ABOUT GOVERNMENTS 4TH SCHEDULE PROPOSALS

TOKM CEO Robin Hapi expressed some reservations about the Governments 4th Schedule compensation proposals announced today.

*This is a long awaited announcement for Maori who have been denied access to these fisheries since the 1992 Deed of Settlement* said Mr Hapi.

*While there is some optimism with the proposals the fact is that Maori are still to be denied access for at least another two years. This is a matter of extreme concern. TOKM can see no reason why Maori should not be given earlier access to some of the species identified with only minor legislative changes required*.

Mr Hapi added that TOKM strongly recommended that the Crown fulfil their obligations to Maori immediately and in a way that does not create further grievances with existing fishers.
