The Government is promising to work with hapu and iwi and Maori organisations to ensure that Maori have fair and equal access to housing and opportunities for home ownership.
In the speech from the throne delivered at today’s opening of parliament, Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy said the Government also intended to review the Whanau Ora delivery model so it can achieve its full potential, support the teaching of te reo Maori in schools, and strengthen programmes to enhance Maori educational achievement.
It committed to completing treaty settlements as quickly and fairly as it can, and to consider what the treaty relationship might look like after historical grievances are settled.
The Governor General said the government intends to be one of inclusion, transformation and aspiration.
