Submission on the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Bill 2010

Summary

  • We oppose this Bill as it maintains the discrimination of the 2004 Act: it continues to treat Māori ownership of coastal land differently to those who have already been granted private title.
  • We wish to recognise and acknowledge the considerable efforts made to find a political compromise on this issue: however, it falls short of what is required to find a just outcome.
