Whereas the Dilworth Trust Board (hereinafter referred to as the Board) is incorporated as a Board pursuant to the provisions of the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 and is trustee of the Trust as defined in section 2 of the Dilworth Trustees Act 1967 and as varied first by that latter Act, and secondly, by the statutory provisions (as defined in section 2 of that latter Act) and thirdly by order of the High Court dated 20 March 1981 made pursuant to section 7 of that latter Act:
And whereas the Board in terms of the Trust administers the Dilworth Ulster Institute more commonly known as the Dilworth School situated at Great South Road, Auckland:
And whereas the said Board has entered into negotiations with the Minister of Education for the integration pursuant to the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 of part of the Institute:
And whereas the terms of the Trust provide generally for the provision of education at the Institute for orphans or children from poor families normally resident in the Auckland Provincial District or the Province of Ulster in Northern Ireland:
And whereas in terms of section 29(2) of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 no prospective pupil shall be refused enrolment at an integrated school on the ground of the pupil's socio-economic background and the Board and the Minister of Education are thereby prevented from entering into an integration agreement, notwithstanding anything contained in section 7(3) of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975:
And whereas this matter can only be dealt with by legislation: And whereas it is desirable that the Minister and the Board be empowered in terms that preserve the basis of selection of pupils as specified in the terms of the Trust to enter into an integration agreement:
And whereas although section 7(3) of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 otherwise empowers the Board to enter into an integration agreement, it is desirable and expedient that the Board be so specifically empowered.
