    The Children's Minister will meet with Maori leaders tomorrow, regarding recent news coverage on child uplifts

    The Children's Minister will meet with Maori leaders tomorrow, regarding recent news coverage on child uplifts


    A Newsroom investigation sparked debate about Oranga Tamariki's attempt to take a newborn baby from its Maori mother while they were still in hospital.

    Tracey Martin says she's listened to the concerns and will travel to Hawke's Bay tomorrow to meet with local iwi and the Maori Council.

    She says she hopes they can consider a pathway that will do better not only for Maori children, but for all children.

    Martin says all parties involved come from exactly the same place - none want any more babies harmed or killed.

    Ministers Kelvin Davis and Nanaia Mahuta are expected to join her.
