Native Affairs - Shane Jones on Labour reshuffle

By Mihingarangi Forbes

It's been a busy week for Labour's new Captain, David Cunliffe, and the first order of business was the reshuffle of his foward pack.

Among the big winners are Nanaia Mahuta, who moves up from being 12th to 9th in the party's rankings.  She takes over the Treaty Negotiations and Māori Development portfolios.

And of course, Shane Jones, who at number 5 is now Labour's highest placed Māori MP.

He's taken over Economic Development, Māori Affairs, Forestry, Associate Fisheries and Associate Finance, and he joined Mihingarangi Forbes in studio.
