Public Works Act

Supremacist maoris and their European sycophants endeavour to make the Public Works Act a race issue - it is not!.

Land if needed for the public good is compulsorily acquired from landholders of all races, and compensation is paid. Think of the orchardists who lost land for the Clyde dam project.

Govt sometimes offers land taken under PWA back to the owner/s or their descendants but did not do this with the old Blenheim Air Force base, giving it instead to iwi in a treaty settlement even though the family wanted to buy it back. See links below
