An Act to validate certain actions of the Hutt Valley and Bays Metropolitan Milk Board

  • Preamble

    Whereas the Hutt Valley and Bays Metropolitan Milk Board, a Board duly constituted under the Milk Act 1944 (hereinafter referred to as the Board), is empowered by section 61 of the said Act, by special order made pursuant to section 42 of the said Act, to fix a day after which it shall be unlawful for any person to do any of the things specified in the said section 61 except under a licence issued by the Board:

    And whereas on 18 February 1946 the Board duly passed at a special meeting of the Board a resolution fixing 1 April 1946 as the appointed day within the meaning of the said section 61, but confirmation of the said resolution was not effected within the period and in the manner prescribed by the said section 42:

    And whereas by the Hutt Valley and Bays Milk Delivery Notice 1946, published in the Gazette of 21 February 1946, at page 247, certain zones within the district of the Board were created by clause 11 of the said notice:

    And whereas the Board varied, amended, and altered certain of the said zones before the revocation of the said notice published in the Gazette of 4 August 1949 at page 1652:

    And whereas doubts have arisen as to the power of the Board so to vary, amend, and alter the said zones before the revocation of the said notice:

    And whereas it is expedient to validate all actions of the Board in respect of the said notice and the said resolution.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Hutt Valley and Bays Metropolitan Milk Board Validation Act 1952. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the Act as at 27 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).
