To post a standard letter $2.00. Again is this another ploy of track and trace along with CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) ?

(3) How are Māori responding to government priorities for transport, such as the road to zero strategy and mode shift?
(4) What are the gaps in data and other evidence that can be used to characterise Māori experiences and impacts on them of the transport system? (5) What responses are required to close data and evidence gaps, and how would these responses be prioritised by Māori?
