Question by MCP: Maori claim to British pensions?
The descendant of a New Zealand Maori warrior chief is campaigning for his people to claim British pensions.
David Rankin is a direct descendent of Hone Heke who played a key part in the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi between indigenous leaders and the British.
He said he would make the claim under Article Three of the treaty, which guarantees Maori “the same rights and privileges as British subjects”.
Mr Rankin, head of the Matarahurahu subtribe, is considering other claims.
“We may expand the claim to include British passports, unemployment benefits, and other entitlements,” he said.
