Explanatory note

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

This order, which comes into force on 30 June 2012, is made under section 26A of the Public Finance Act 1989 (the Act).

Section 26A of the Act authorises the Governor-General, by Order in Council, to direct that an amount appropriated for an output expense appropriation in a Vote be transferred to another output expense appropriation in that Vote if—

  • the amount transferred does not increase that appropriation for a financial year by more than 5%; and

  • no other transfer under that section to that appropriation has occurred during that financial year; and

  • the total amount appropriated for that financial year for all output expense appropriations in that Vote is unaltered.

This order directs that, for the financial year ending 30 June 2012,—

  • a total of $2,220,000 is transferred from the amount appropriated for 1 output expense appropriation in Vote Defence Force to 3 other output expense appropriations in that Vote:

  • a total of $216,000 is transferred from the amount appropriated for 1 output expense appropriation in Vote Ministerial Services to 1 other output expense appropriation in that Vote:

  • a total of $6,000,000 is transferred from the amounts appropriated for 2 output expense appropriations in Vote Revenue to 1 other output expense appropriation in that Vote:

  • a total of $300,000 is transferred from the amount appropriated for 1 output expense appropriation in Vote Social Development to 1 other output expense appropriation in that Vote:

  • a total of $50,000 is transferred from the amount appropriated for 1 output expense appropriation in Vote Transport to 1 other output expense appropriation in that Vote.

An order that was made under section 26A of the Act in respect of the financial year ending on 30 June 2011 and that is now spent is revoked.


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

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Public Finance (Transfers Between Outputs) Order 2012. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the order as at 30 June 2013, as specified in the list of amendments at the end of these notes.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that contain transitional, savings, or application provisions that cannot be compiled in the reprint are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order. For more information, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/reprints/ .

2 Status of reprints
  • Under section 16D of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption applies even though editorial changes authorised by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have been made in the reprint.

    This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the principal enactment and its amendments are contained.

3 How reprints are prepared
  • A number of editorial conventions are followed in the preparation of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/editorial-conventions/ or Part 8 of the Tables of New Zealand Acts and Ordinances and Statutory Regulations and Deemed Regulations in Force.

4 Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
  • Section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set out in sections 17D and 17E of that Act so that, to the extent permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.

    A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000. Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since 1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legislation reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of the reprint.

    In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the authority of section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

    • omission of unnecessary referential words (such as of this section and of this Act)

    • typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5 point)

    • layout of provisions, including:

      • indentation

      • position of section headings (eg, the number and heading now appear above the section)

    • format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appears in bold type, without quotation marks)

    • format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as the 1st day of January 1999 is now expressed as 1 January 1999)

    • position of the date of assent (it now appears on the front page of each Act)

    • punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions)

    • Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced with arabic numerals, and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • case and appearance of letters and words, including:

      • format of headings (eg, headings where each word formerly appeared with an initial capital letter followed by small capital letters are amended so that the heading appears in bold, with only the first word (and any proper nouns) appearing with an initial capital letter)

      • small capital letters in section and subsection references are now capital letters

    • schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces First Schedule), and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • running heads (the information that appears at the top of each page)

    • format of two-column schedules of consequential amendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they are rearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chronological).
