Iwi leaders have met with Government representatives wanting more clarity on how ACT's Treaty Principles Bill might progress through parliament.

The prime minister and other members of his cabinet arrived in Kerikeri today to meet the 74 iwi groups at the National Iwi Chairs' Forum.

Christopher Luxon has stressed National has no intention of supporting the Treaty Principles beyond its first reading in parliament, but iwi leaders are not so convinced.

Political reporter Anneke Smith spoke to Charlotte Cook.
