A Wellington woman is seeking assurances from Inland Revenue about its data protection protocols after a privacy breach. The woman, who Nine to Noon has agreed not to name to protect her children's privacy, got a letter from IRD addressed to her, but which included the full name of a stranger - a father who was paying child support,  and his child. She says it raises wider questions about the way IRD handles private information. IRD says it was a one-off handling error not a systemic problem.

11.30 Galleries of Maoriland: a reciprocal relationship

Art historian Roger Blackley's new book Galleries of Maoriland  offers a fresh perspective on the colonial art world.  Former curator of Historical New Zealand Art at the Auckland Art Gallery Roger Blackley tells Kathryn Ryan while the received art history wisdom of the late Victorian period positions Māori as passive victims of colonialism, his research suggests the turn of the century was in fact a time of mutually beneficial transactions between Māori and European artists. Here he explores how the likes of Gottfried Lindauer and Charles F.
