This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Bill by ensuring that the manawhenua hapū associated with a site must also approve an archaeologist.

The Green Party is suggesting that where a site is of interest to manawhenua hapū, the archaeologist appointment needs the approval of the manawhenua hapū.
