"The Maori Statutory Board has worked against the interests of Aucklanders, has cost rate-payers millions of dollars, and is an example of race-based politics. Most of the Board's work has been focussed on bans: bans on people accessing Mt Eden; bans on people developing their own sections without paying a 'taniwha tax'; and bans on equal rights for all cultures. The Board is anti-democratic and as an experiment, has failed. We call for the Government to legislate to abolish the Maori Statutory Board".
