Letter to Prime Minister Clark on the police shooting of an unarmed man at Waitara  here
In the above letter to Prime Minister Clark, a Labour prime Minister, the Centre said in part that " . . . the Centre takes the view that the lives of the disadvantaged in this country do not register as meaningful in the minds of the powerful." It now transpires that Prime Minister Clark has in fact apparently used pejorative lanquage herself in opposing the possibilty of the disadvantaged taking up residence in her neighbourhood. A transcript of her submission - made as a private individual but faxed by a staff member on letterhead - to her local authority, can be found  here
