Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia says Labour would never have implemented her Whanau Ora policy.

The Whanau Ora Minister is taking issue at a claim by Labour’s Te Tai Hauauru candidate, Adrian Rurawhe, that Labour had a hand in creating the policy of integrated service delivery through Maori providers.

Mrs Turia says it’s an idea she took to Labour when she first came to parliament as a Labour list MP.

"I worked for Te Oranganui Iwi Health Authority and it was us who actually developed whanau ora within the job that I had before but Labour would never implement it so he only told half the story, kind of trying to capture and make out that whanau ora belonged to Labour but Labour would never ever implement it," she says.

Mrs Turia says Labour wants to keep everything under the control of the state, so it was not prepared to go as far as National in devolve service provision to outside groups.
