Māori - Fisheries
The Court of Appeal has dismissed appeals against the Sealord Products deal. Several Māori tribes wanted interim injunctions to stop the deal from going ahead. The National government plans to buy a share in Sealord (currently owned by Carter Hold Harvey) for Māori tribes, to settle commercial fishing claims under the Treaty of Waitangi.
Merle Nowland reports on the Court of Appeal decision. Adam Gifford interviews Māori fisheries negotiators Sir Graham Latimer and Tipene O'Regan, Maui Solomon of the Chatham Islands, Apirana Mahuika, and the Deputy Managing Director of Carter Holt Harvey, Wilson Whineray.
