FULL INTERVIEW WITH KELVIN DAVIS

 

The Minister for Crown Maori Relationships is about to head out onto the road to hear what Maori think his job should be.

Kelvin Davis says he will visit marae and communities overcoming months to give people the opportunity to say what they want from the crown.

He has already tried to change some of the processes by helping fellow ministers engage with Maori on contentious issues.

He says some people have been surprised at his approach to cutting red tape and treating people like whanaunga.

"I think they have been so used to this formal approach from the crown that it’s almost become a barrier, that formality, and if we can be a lot more flexible in our approach I think we’d get a lot better results and Maori would feel a lot more comfortable," Mr Davis says.
