This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on the 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, amends Schedule 4 of the New Zealand Superannuation Act 2001 (the Act).

Schedule 4 lists the political parties represented in Parliament who agree to Part 1 of the Act (which relates to entitlements to New Zealand superannuation) or to Part 2 of the Act (which relates to the New Zealand Superannuation Fund).

The effect of this order is to include the New Zealand National Party as a political party that agrees to Parts 1 and 2 of the Act.

Under section 73 of the Act, the Minister must, on the introduction of a Government Bill that proposes an amendment to the Act, bring to the attention of the House of Representatives the consultation process that was followed in the formulation of the proposed amendment. That statement must state whether consultation has taken place with the parties that are in agreement with the Part proposed to be amended (as listed in Schedule 4) and the results of the consultation.
