Government record "worst ever" - Davis

Labour's new Maori Development spokesperson says the Government has failed to deliver for Maori where it counts.
On Radio Waatea this morning, host and former National MP Claudette Hauiti told Kelvin Davis he would struggle to find ways to attack Minister Te Ururoa Flavell, given the Government's progress in settling treaty claims and the continued growth of the Maori economy.
But Mr Davis says he has plenty to work on.
"Well let's start with Maori unemployment, it's the worst it has ever been. Let's start with Maori housing, it's the worst it has ever been. Let's start with Maori education, that's pretty poor. Maori health, that's pretty poor. Claudette, you can sit there and say this Government has done more than any Government for Maori, I'm saying it's the opposite. The things that really matter, are still as bad and in fact have got worse under this Government," he says.Copyright © 2015, UMA Broadcasting Ltd: www.waateanews.com
