Māori - Fisheries

From the collecton Treaty of Waitangi

The High Court has refused to grant an injunction stopping the National government's Sealord deal. The deal will give Māori a share in Sealord Products, as a way of settling commercial fishing claims. Dissenting tribes and Chatham Islands Moriori brought the action to the High Court. Adam Gifford speaks to Māori fisheries negotiator, Tipene O'Regan, who says he is pleased with the decision, and Michael Bradley of the Rangitāne tribe who criticises the judgement.
