From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 6 August 2019

Figures obtained under the Official Information Act show its latest attempt to establish a new mandate cost more than a million.

Ngāpuhi representatives told RNZ reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui it's clear the Crown-led settlement process isn't working.
