The Education Minister has received the first submission from one of the Maori immersion schools in Christchurch rejecting a future merger. A veteran Maori union leader says the Government should launch a major house-building project to get Maori into work. A Ngati Kahungunu leader who helped secure the iwi's first Treaty Settlement and establish their place in the fishing industry has stepped down as head of the iwi's business arm.
