Hone Harawira and Reality – divorced

Check this exchange in Question time today.

[quote]Hon MARK BURTON (Minister in charge of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations): In the Te Arawa lakes settlement, the Crown and Te Arawa agreed that the Crown will retain ownership of the water column and airspace, while the beds of 13 lakes transfer to Te Arawa.

Hone Harawira: Given the Minister's response, does he find it reasonable that Te Arawa should be paid a storage fee for holding the Crown's water on its lakebed, and has that fee been factored into the terms of the Te Arawa lakes settlement; if not, why not?[/quote]
