Expect some targets Māori programmes from this year’s wellbeing Budget.

There has been a debate behind the scenes between Labour’s Māori caucus, which wants some Māori -branded spending to show supporters they can make an impact, and Finance Minister Grant Robertson, who favours a universal approach where a rising tide will float all boats.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says she feels the pressure that Māori do better over all.

"No doubt this Budget we have already said we want to prioritise lifting incomes and opportunities for Māori. Yes for Māori we have said there will be targeted funding but the Minister of Finance will have something to say if I reveal too much until such time as all those decisions have been settled but that's something we have set as one of our wellbeing priorities," she says.
