Waitangi Tribunal queries
From: James Watson
Dear Ministry of Justice,
I would like information on:
(1) the average time-frame it has taken the Waitangi Tribunal from receiving a claim relating to proposed legislation (i.e. relating to the Tribunal's jurisidction under s 8 of the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975) to issuing a report in respect of such a claim; and
(2) the number of (and name of the) reports since 1990 in which the Waitangi Tribunal has found that a statutory instrument was inconsistent with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.
