In 1864 the government of Frederick Whitaker resigned due to disputes with the Governor. The point in question was who should bear responsibility for funding British troops stationed in New Zealand. Weld, believing that it was British ineptitude that caused conflict with the Maori in the first place, strongly objected to Grey's demands that Parliament should fund the troops. Weld instead believed that British troops should be removed from New Zealand altogether, and be replaced by local forces. As Premier, Weld met with mixed success. In 1865 the capital was indeed moved to Wellington, and his proposals for Maori relations were adopted. These two things generated considerable bitterness, however Aucklanders were angry about the change of capital, and Maori were angry about the confiscation of over a million acres (4000 km) of land in the Waikato area. Weld's other success, the withdrawal of British troops from New Zealand, was also controversial, and generated considerable hostility from the Governor. In addition, the government's financial situation was precarious. A little less than a year after taking office, Weld's government resigned..."
