From Morning Report, 7:36 am on 3 August 2018

Leaders at the Iwi Chairs Forum look set to be heading back to court over Māori rights to freshwater. Several Cabinet ministers are headed north to Ngaruawahia on Friday to meet with the Iwi Chairs Forum, where water is set to be a hot issue. It's the first meeting between the leaders and the government since Cabinet agreed not to pursue any water ownership rights for Māori.
