Was TRC Land offered to Ngati Paoa?

B Evans made this Official Information request to Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations

The request was refused by Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations.

From: B Evans

Dear Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations,

In Treaty Settlement negotiations with Ngati Paoa, was the residential land in Tamaki held by the NZ Housing Corp, later transferred to TRC/TRL, raised as possible redress for Ngati Paoa? If not, why not?

If it was, what happened?

When there is 'fit for purpose' Crown controlled land in the Tamaki area, suitable for redress, why did the Government offer the majestic Point England Reserve (open space, bird sanctuary, sports fields) for commercial redress?

Yours faithfully,

B Evans
