The Press - - Politics-News -

Labour says its iwi home own­er­ship pack­age will en­able and up­hold the right to build on multi-ti­tled Maori land. Labour’s Maori De­vel­op­ment spokesman Kelvin Davis said 20,000 more Maori would get houses through ex­panded Maori home own­er­ship pro­grammes. Th­ese in­clude an over­haul of the Kainga Whenua and Wel­come Home Loans schemes, shared eq­uity op­tions, en­abling iwi to ac­cess mort­gages col­lec­tively to build on Maori land, and a Maori Hous­ing Unit.
