Dear editor, One response from the Project Management Unit to being advised of the possible contamination of the Turangi stream was the public statement that "no disinfection chemicals have been used at the intakes". This year, government has issued a number of statements regarding chemical-use that lack credibility.
Your front page article (“Motu owners may ask fee for lagoon cruises access”, November 21) has prompted me to respond.

You report (“Hopes pinned on Constitution to sway committee”, November 16) comments made by the Cook Islands Law Society with regard to the criminalisation of same-sex relationships.
I don’t wish to cast a sour note – but it concerns me that the announcement regarding the presentation of “law books” to the library will suggest to the public that this will be a convenient research venue to find out what the law is on any given subject.
