The Government say this will grow exports to the EU to $1.8 billion a year by 2035, but the meat industry says we've got a raw deal from it, while the dairy sector hasn't fared much better.

Some clarity on Ihumatao.

The Government stepped in to buy the land from Fletcher back in 2020, and today Maori Development Minister Willie Jackson has appointed two crown representatives to the Steering Committee that will determine Ihumatao's future.
