Exhibition and book caption reads - A draft [Australian] federal constitution drawn up in 1891 for the discussion and approval of colonial governments was not even tabled in the New Zealand Parliament and thre were no representatives at the final, bargaining conferences in the late 1890s. New Zealand Prime Minister Richard John Seddon, a popular figure on both sides of the Tasman, had little enthusiasm for weakening New Zealand's sovereignity, his political power, or his imperial ambitions for the South Pacific.
