The Taranaki Iwi Claims Settlement Bill has passed first reading and been referred to the Māori Affairs Committee.
This bill records the acknowledgements and apology given by the Crown to Taranaki Iwi in the deed of settlement dated 5 September 2015 between the Crown and Taranaki Iwi; and gives effect to the deed, in which the Crown and Taranaki Iwi agree to a final settlement of all Taranaki Iwi’s historical Treaty of Waitangi claims.
