Crown Wins Water Case

Radio Live have just tweeted:

Good stuff.

Tony Ryall and Bill English have said in their Press Release:

Finance Minister Bill English and State Owned Enterprises Minister Tony Ryall today welcomed the High Court decision in favour of the Crown following last month?s High Court action regarding the sale of shares in Mighty River Power.

?The High Court decision confirms the Government can proceed to sell up to 49 per cent of shares in four state owned energy companies, in accordance with the legislation passed by Parliament earlier this year,? Mr English says.

?The Government is firmly of the view that the partial sale of shares does not in any way affect the Crown?s ability to recognise rights and interests in water, or to provide redress for genuine Treaty claims.?


Deep pockets. For the lawyer troughers.
