Explanatory note

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.

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

Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
