Put The Treaty Back In The BORA

When the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 was first floated, it included a clause recognising and affirming rights under the Treaty of Waitangi. This clause was subsequently removed by a select committee, and so was not included in the final Act.

Alterantively, if a weaker option is preferred, another Act (the one establishing TPK?) could be amended to include a reporting function for inconsistencies with the Treaty similar to that required under s7 BORA.
