Te Manu Korihi for 25 November 2013

From Morning Report, 8:48 am on 25 November 2013

The co-leader of the Maori Party, Te Ururoa Flavell, says there is no political will to reduce Maori electorate boundaries, to improve tangata whenua representation; Te Puni Kokiri says it won't be making any staffing changes, until it's talked to iwi, hapu and whanau about which direction the government agency is going in; An iwi-liaison officer in the Far North is urging other police districts to collaborate with Maori social service providers to help bring down Maori offending; Ngati Apa in the Lower North Island is confident its recent purchase of a large retail complex in Palmerston North will give the iwi some exceptional returns - due to the calibre of its tenants.
