New Zealand Prime Minister Announces Pregnancy

Posted on: Mon 22 Jan 2018

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announces that she is pregnant and expecting to give birth in June.

Following the Office of Treaty Settlements resolution to complete historical settlements with all willing-and-able Māori groups by 2020, two Iwi have recently received top up payments from the government.

Meanwhile, the completed upgrades to walking tracks in the Hauraki, Coromandel and Tauranga districts will help preserve the Kauri tree.

Our New Zealand correspondent, Pearl Little, joins Tom Mann to discuss these issues and more.
