Jackson sorry for offence after Māori comments

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 3 May 2019

Employment Minister Willie Jackson has sparked a heated debate about which MPs are allowed to identify as Maori. Mr Jackson called National MP Paula Bennett's heritage into question, saying she doesn't know from one day to the next whether she's Maori. National's Paula Bennett says she's identified as Maori since she was born, and the comments made in the House went too far.
