Text:New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has criticised the use of the term "family homosexual category" in a letter from the Immigration Service to a new migrant given residency. Peters said he was surprised the category existed, saying it was wrong to select people for residence in New Zealand based on their sexual orientation. But Immigration Minister Lianne Dalziel said he had scored an "own goal" by raising the issue when the "homosexual" category he referred to was abolished by one of his own former MPs three years ago.
