Waitangi Tribunal – Motunui
The Government ignores the recommendation of the Waitangi Tribunal over the Motunui outfall. The Prime Minister, Robert Muldoon, says there will be no problem caused by pollution from the outfall. Aila Taylor says he does not trust the company not to breach the rules, and Rebecca Evans from the Waitangi Action Committee says that the Tribunal can consider itself redundant after this Government's decision. Matiu Rata suggests that there now needs to be a review.
