The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia had admitted its involvement in forced adoptions in the 20th Century. Archbishop Philip Richardson, who, as one of the church’s three primates, has responsibility for the Tikanga Pakeha – the part of the Church representing the descendants of European settlers – has welcomed calls for an official inquiry and said that the church is ready to open its record books.
