An Act to make special provision for the control and management of the harbour of Okarito

1 Short Title
  • This Act may be cited as the Okarito Harbour Act 1932–33.

2 Special provisions with respect to control and management of Okarito Harbour
  • (1) The Governor-General may from time to time, by Order in Council, vest the control and management of the harbour of Okarito in any person or persons (whether corporate or unincorporate) for a period to be specified in the order, not exceeding in any case 25 years.

    (2) The Governor-General may from time to time, by the same or any subsequent Order in Council, direct that any provisions of the Harbours Act 1923 specified in the order shall apply as if such person or persons were a Harbour Board within the meaning of that Act, and so long as the control and management of the said harbour remains vested in such person or persons all such provisions shall, with the necessary modifications, apply accordingly.

    (3) Subject to the last preceding subsection, the provisions of the Harbours Act 1923 shall continue to apply to the said harbour as in the case of harbours where there is no Harbour Board.

    (4) Every Order in Council under this Act shall be issued upon such terms and conditions as the Governor-General in Council thinks fit; and any such order may be from time to time altered or be at any time revoked by a subsequent Order in Council.

3 Provision for making rules in lieu of bylaws
  • (1) In the application of any provisions of the Harbours Act 1923 to the harbour of Okarito, all references therein to bylaws made under that Act shall be construed as referring to rules made under this Act.

    (2) Rules so made shall not be repugnant to the provisions of the Harbours Act 1923 or any general harbour regulations thereunder, or of this Act or any Order in Council thereunder, or of any other Act; and they shall not come into force until such date as the Minister of Marine specifies in that behalf in a notice published in the Gazette approving such rules, after a copy of the rules signed by the person or persons having the control and management of the said harbour under this Act, or in the case of a company sealed with its common seal, has been sent to the Minister.

    (3) Subject to the provisions of this section, the Minister's approval of any such rules may be given upon such terms and conditions as he thinks fit.

    (4) The production of any document purporting to be a printed copy of any rule made under this Act and of a notice by the Minister approving such rule, and to be signed by the person or persons having the control and management of the said harbour under this Act, or in the case of a company sealed with its common seal, shall, unless the contrary is shown, be sufficient evidence that such rule has been duly made and approved, and that it duly came into force on the day specified in that behalf in such notice.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Okarito Harbour Act 1932–33. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the Act as at 5 March 1933, 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).
