The Taranaki Claims Settlement Bill has passed second reading.

Ayes 108 (National 59, Labour 32, Greens 13, Maori Party 2 ACT 1, United Future 1)

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.
