From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 19 May 2017

The 1835 Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Waitangi, and the Women's Suffrage Petition will be part of a new permanent exhibition called He Tohu at the National Library from tomorrow. Stefanie Lash, the lead curator for He Tohu, says "having the real thing in front of you is a very special experience." She says they hope to be able to look after them for "at least 500 years."
