An Act to extend the powers of rating vested in the Makerua Drainage Board

  • Preamble

    Whereas the Makerua Drainage Board (hereinafter called the Board) is a Board constituted under the Land Drainage Act 1908:

    And whereas the Board by section 31 of that Act is entitled to levy a rate not exceeding 0.625 cents in the dollar on the rateable value of all lands within the district of the Board:

    And whereas by section 2 of the Makerua Drainage Board Empowering Act 1942 the Board was empowered to increase such rate but not so as to exceed 0.833 cents in the dollar on the rateable value of all lands within the district of the Board:

    And whereas owing to a reduction in the unimproved value of all lands within the district of the Board it has been found that the aforesaid power to rate is insufficient to enable the Board to meet its ordinary expenditure.

1 Short Title
  • This Act may be cited as the Makerua Drainage Board Empowering Act 1952.

2 Increasing Board's rating power
  • (1) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 31 of the Land Drainage Act 1908, the Board may for the purposes of that Act levy a rate exceeding 0.625 cents in the dollar but not exceeding 2.5 cents in the dollar.

    (2) The provisions of section 12 of the Land Drainage Amendment Act 1922 shall apply in relation to rates levied pursuant to the authority conferred by this section to the same extent as it applies in relation to rates levied pursuant to the authority conferred by section 31 of the Land Drainage Act 1908.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Makerua Drainage Board Empowering Act 1952. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the Act as at 17 September 1952, as specified in the list of amendments at the end of these notes.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that contain transitional, savings, or application provisions that cannot be compiled in the reprint are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order. For more information, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/reprints/ .

2 Status of reprints
  • Under section 16D of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption applies even though editorial changes authorised by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have been made in the reprint.

    This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the principal enactment and its amendments are contained.

3 How reprints are prepared
  • A number of editorial conventions are followed in the preparation of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/editorial-conventions/ or Part 8 of the Tables of New Zealand Acts and Ordinances and Statutory Regulations and Deemed Regulations in Force.

4 Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
  • Section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set out in sections 17D and 17E of that Act so that, to the extent permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.

    A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000. Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since 1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legislation reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of the reprint.

    In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the authority of section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

    • omission of unnecessary referential words (such as of this section and of this Act)

    • typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5 point)

    • layout of provisions, including:

      • indentation

      • position of section headings (eg, the number and heading now appear above the section)

    • format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appears in bold type, without quotation marks)

    • format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as the 1st day of January 1999 is now expressed as 1 January 1999)

    • position of the date of assent (it now appears on the front page of each Act)

    • punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions)

    • Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced with arabic numerals, and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • case and appearance of letters and words, including:

      • format of headings (eg, headings where each word formerly appeared with an initial capital letter followed by small capital letters are amended so that the heading appears in bold, with only the first word (and any proper nouns) appearing with an initial capital letter)

      • small capital letters in section and subsection references are now capital letters

    • schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces First Schedule), and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • running heads (the information that appears at the top of each page)

    • format of two-column schedules of consequential amendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they are rearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chronological).
