A Bill to settle Moriori claims has passed its first reading.

The Bill will put into law the settlement signed 12 months ago, which will include a Crown apology for historical breaches of the Treaty of Waitangi, the transfer of lands of cultural and spiritual significance to Moriori on Rēkohu (Chatham Island) and Rangihaute (Pitt Island), and $18 million in financial redress.

Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little says no settlement package could ever fully compensate Moriori who suffered such a magnitude of loss and prejudice, but the Crown hopes it will go some way to atone for past injustices.

He says it heralds a new relationship between Moriori and the Crown based on cooperation, mutual trust, and respect for Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its principles.

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.
