From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 10 February 2021

The National MP Simon Bridges has railed against the Government's move to protect Māori wards, saying it's insulting to him as a Māori man.

Labour has begun rushing through legislation under urgency to do away with a public veto on the wards - with its first reading passing last night.

RNZ deputy political editor Craig McCulloch was listening in.
