Waititi to wear his 'Māori business attire' back to Parliament

From Morning Report, 7:22 am on 10 February 2021

The Speaker of the House has offered an olive branch to Māori Party co-leader Rawiri Waititi over his refusal to wear a tie in the debating chamber.

Trevor Mallard's office has confirmed he has encouraged the Party to submit to the Standing Orders Committee asking that hei-tiki be allowed instead of a tie.

Waititi speaks to Corin Dann.
