This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order amends the Social Welfare (Reciprocity with Canada) Order 1996 in order to state its commencement date. When that order was made it provided that it would commence on
“the first day of the fourth month following the month in which the Governments of New Zealand and Canada exchange notes through the diplomatic channel notifying each other that the last of such things has been done as is necessary to give the Agreements the force of law in Canada and in New Zealand”. The relevant date is 1 May 1997.
