Ombudsman backs MPI re swamp kauri land privacy

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 20 June 2017

In a break from tradition, the Ombudsman has ruled that the Ministry for Primary Industries no longer has to reveal the locations where swamp kauri is being extracted. That's in contrast to what's happened in the past, and the Far North Environmental Protection Society says the change is a set back for it, as previously members were able to research the land being used.
