The Māori Party wants COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins to immediately release his plan for rolling out vaccines in Māori communities.

In response to a question yesterday, Mr Hipkins confirmed a plan existed and that Māori are a population group particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.

Māori Party co-leader Debbie Ngarewa-Packer says Māori organisations need to know the plan so they can start telling their people the importance of getting vaccinated early.

She says the plan needs to recognise Māori have a higher vulnerability to COVID-19 at earlier ages than the general population.

OPINION: Will Maori suffer more convictions from new sexual assault laws?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The new Sexual Violence legislation the Greens are pushing through Parliament has noble intentions to make the process less traumatic on victims, but by removing defences to rape to ensure more guilty verdicts are returned, the Greens could be setting up more Māori men for convictions.

OPINION: Kelvin Davis has another terrible day at the office
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I am honestly not sure who is advising Minister Kelvin Davis, but his surprising decision this week to attack People Against Prisons Aotearoa (PAPA) and refer their pamphlets calling on prison reform to the Police for supposedly inciting the prison riot at Waikeria prison is such a desperately wrong footed move one is left wondering what on earth he thinks he's doing.
