Explanatory note

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

This determination, which comes into force on 1 July 2010, amends the Executive Travel, Accommodation, Attendance, and Communications Services Determination (No 2) 2009. That determines that the additional travel, accommodation, and communications services available to members of the Executive are set out in the document entitled Travel, Accommodation, and Communications Services Available to Members of the Executive signed by the Minister Responsible for Ministerial Services on 22 October 2009.

The amendment applies 2 additional clauses in that document in the period 1 July 2010 to 31 December 2011. These clauses concern the expenses payable in respect of travel in New Zealand by a member of the Executive during the period 1 September 2011 to 31 October 2011 (the Rugby World Cup period) and the costs that may be claimed by a Minister who stays in a hotel when in Wellington during that period. Their effect is to—

  • allow a member of the Executive, during the Rugby World Cup period, to exceed the maximum daily limit of $350 (or $500, if the occasion involves the attendance by the member of the Executive's spouse or partner in specified circumstances) normally payable for accommodation, meals, and incidental expenses when the member of the Executive travels on ministerial or parliamentary business and is more than a specified distance from his or her primary place of residence. The member of the Executive is entitled to have his or her reasonable travel expenses paid during this period:

  • allow a Minister who stays in a hotel when in Wellington to exceed, during the Rugby World Cup period, the maximum limit of $200 that normally applies in respect of any single night's accommodation. The Minister is entitled to reimbursement of actual and reasonable hotel accommodation costs during this period.
