Minister of Conservation Resignation[edit]

I notice that someone anonymous edited this article on 18th September 2009 to remove the information that Denis Marshall resigned as Minister of Conservation in 1996 as a consequence of strong criticism of his management and funding of the department following the Cave Creek disaster in which 14 people died from a viewing platform collapse. I don't know why this was removed because it seems a very significant aspect of his career as a Minister, so I'm adding it back. Izogi (talk) 12:48, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Steamer Wharf Development[edit]

Was it Denis Marshal who reduced the Queens chain on the Queenstown foreshore? "The second set of events that have caused this issue to come into sharp focus in recent weeks relates to the announcement late last week of the Minister's decision to reduce the Queen's Chain in front of the Queenstown steamer wharf from 20 metres to 3 metres, in defiance of local council and public opinion.
