Letters: Nobody is above the law

Sunday December 15, 2019

Dear editor,

The conscientious action taken by Anna Rasmussen, Tere Carr, Justine Flanagan and Andy Kirkwood, who form the face and team of “Te Vai Ora Maori” should be applauded.

Has water authority (government) investigated cleaner water treatment option before making commitment to chlorinate water on Rarotonga?

The government has included a Universal Access Plan into its revised Telecommunications Bill 2019, offering concessions for internet access and services "of reasonable quality" and "at a reasonable cost" for "particular groups of persons or to persons in particular areas".
