The new Government’s plans to revert government department names back to their English names.

This policy will mean that a government agency like Waka Kotahi will have to revert back to using NZTA as their primary identifier. 

Nicholas spoke to the National Party’s Dr Shane Reti about why changing the agency names has been a priority for his government. 

They also spoke about the legacy that the name changes will leave and how his government plans to support Te Reo Maori.

Nicholas began by asking Dr Reti, why his government believes department name changes are necessary.
