4 Te Runanga o Ngati Whatua deemed to be mana authority in place of Ngati Whatua o Orakei Maori Trust Board
5 Application of sections 5 to 12 of principal Act to Te Runanga o Ngati Whatua
The Parliament of New Zealand enacts as follows:
(1) This Act is the Maori Purposes Act 1993 Amendment Act 2001.
(2) In this Act, the Maori Purposes Act 1993 is called “the principal Act”.
“the principal Act”
This Act comes into force on the day after the date on which it receives the Royal assent.
In this Act, unless the context otherwise requires,—
specified mana contract means the mana contract entered into in 1988 by the Crown and the Trust Board
Te Runanga means Te Runanga o Ngati Whatua constituted by section 4 of Te Runanga o Ngati Whatua Act 1988
Trust Board means Ngati Whatua o Orakei Maori Trust Board constituted by section 4 of the Orakei Block (Vesting and Use) Act 1978 and referred to in section 6A of the Maori Trust Boards Act 1955.
For the purposes of the principal Act, Te Runanga is, and has always been, a mana authority in place of the Trust Board as if Te Runanga and not the Trust Board were and had always been the party to the specified mana contract.
Sections 5 to 12 of the principal Act apply, and are deemed always to have applied, to Te Runanga as if, on 29 April 1994, an Order in Council (made under section 4(1) of the principal Act and applying sections 5 to 7 of the principal Act to Te Runanga as a mana authority) had come into force on that date.
