A New Zealand First MP's showing sympathy towards David Seymour's position on Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
ACT wants a referendum on Treaty principles, and signalled it's a priority in post-election talks.
Shane Jones told Radio Waatea the courts have been liberal in their interpretation of the Treaty, and he understands why Seymour wants it tidied up.
Former National Party Treaty Minister Chris Finlayson told Mike Hosking that while he is against the referendum, Jones did raise a good point about the Waitangi Tribunal.
The Tribunal was formed in 1975 so, he said, a 50-year review of its role is a good idea.
