This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2011, are made under the Citizens Initiated Referenda Act 1993 (the Act). They amend fees regulations made under the Act. The fee that is required to accompany a proposal is adjusted to reflect the movement in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since 1 July 2004.
The fee replaced is inclusive of goods and services tax (GST), but was not amended directly to reflect the 1 October 2010 GST increase, and so differed from that actually charged. The new fee is also GST inclusive.
Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
