The status of the Waitangi Tribunal

Danya Levy at Stuff reports:

Opposition parties are calling on the Maori Party to walk the away from its support agreement with National over the Prime Minister’s “insulting” comments about the Waitangi Tribunal.

The “insulting” comment was noting the fact that the Tribunal’s recommendations are not binding on the Government and Parliament.

As opposition parties are calling on the Maori Party to walk away from the Government on this issue, I can only assume that means it is their intention to make the Waitangi Tribunal recommendations binding on Government and Parliament.
