From Morning Report, 8:40 am on 13 December 2023

Minister of Treaty negotiations Paul Goldsmith says he's committed to settling Ngapuhi's treaty claim, but says he doesn't want to "relitigate" arguments around legal sovereignty. On Saturday Waitangi Tribunal members travelled to Waitangi to hand over the completed part one, stage two Te Paparahi o Te Raki report, also known as the Northern Inquiry. The report deals with land loss, military conflict and Treaty breaches endured by Ngapuhi, Northland's biggest iwi, between 1840 and 1900. Goldsmith spoke to Corin Dann about the return of land in any settlement.
