Explanatory memorandum

This memorandum is not part of the determination, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This determination, which is deemed to have come into force on October 2006, and expires on 30 September 2007, sets the salaries and allowances for the judiciary. The general movement is driven by data obtained about movement in the legal profession while actual movements of salary are in the range of $10,000 to $16,000 per annum as a consequence of rounding.

In the previous determination (Judicial Salaries and Allowances Determination 2006 (SR 2006/10)), we addressed the matter of the additional costs incurred by the Chief High Court Judge in maintaining a secondary residence in Auckland.

A related issue affecting some Judges of the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal has again been brought to our attention. This new matter is still being considered by the Authority and, should we decide that some action on it is warranted, an amending determination will be issued.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 30 November 2006.
