Calls for moratorium on new mines on conservation land

From Midday Report, 12:46 pm on 8 June 2023

Forest and Bird is calling for a moratorium on new mines on public conservation land.

The Government has not supported the Green Party member's bill - the Crown Minerals Prohibition of Mining Amendment Bill, which had its first reading yesterday. 

Forest and Bird says the government has failed on its promise to end new mines on conservation land.

Nicola Toki is the chief executive of Forest and Bird, she speaks to Charlotte Cook.
