Submission to entrench Māori seats taken to Parliament

From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 14 March 2019

A bill that would give Māori seats in Parliament the same protection as general seats is one step closer to becoming law. Its supporters presented their submissions before the Māori Affairs Select Committee on Wednesday. Te Aniwa Hurihanganui was there.
