MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, April 29) - An opposition
member of parliament in Niue says the island may have to seriously consider
becoming part of New Zealand, because its population has dropped below
sustainable levels.

Veve Jacobsen says she is not particularly happy about the
prospect of Niue losing its independence.

But with fewer people remaining on the island each year, lack of
business activity, and little prospect of investment; it may be the only viable
option, she said.
