Dated at Wellington this 28th day of February 2013.
Clerk of the House of Representatives.
This note is not part of the notice, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This notice relates to a notice of motion to disallow the following provisions of the Road User Charges (Transitional Matters) Regulations 2012 (SR 2012/145):
regulation 5(3) (which modifies, during a specified transitional period, the definition of exempt vehicle in section 5(1) of the Road User Charges Act 2012 (the 2012 Act) to provide an exemption under that Act for unregistered vehicles operating under trade plates):
regulation 5(4) (which modifies, during a specified transitional period, section 5(1) of the 2012 Act by replacing the definition of permit to clarify that the term means a permit issued by a road controlling authority):
regulation 8 (which modifies, during a specified transitional period, the 2012 Act by inserting a new section that provides for the exemption granted under the Road User Charges Act 1977 in respect of farmers’ vehicles used on the road only in connection with agricultural operations to continue to apply as if those vehicles were exempt within the meaning of section 5(1) of the 2012 Act).
The notice of motion was given in the House of Representatives on a sitting day, 13 November 2012, by a member of Parliament who was, at the time of the giving of the notice, a member of the Regulations Review Committee.
As the notice of motion was not withdrawn, moved, or otherwise disposed of by the expiry of 21 sitting days after the date on which it was given, section 6(1) of the Regulations (Disallowance) Act 1989 (the 1989 Act) provides that the regulations specified for disallowance in the motion are deemed to have been disallowed.
Under section 6(2)(a) of the 1989 Act, the disallowed regulations cease to have effect on the expiry of the 21st sitting day after the giving of the notice of motion. In this case, the date of the 21st sitting day after the giving of the notice of motion is 27 February 2013. Accordingly, the disallowed regulations ceased to have effect on the close of 27 February 2013.
Section 7 of the 1989 Act provides that the disallowance of regulations has the same effect as a revocation of those regulations.
The effect of the notice of motion and the operation of the 1989 Act is, therefore, that regulations 5(3), 5(4), and 8 of the Road User Charges (Transitional Matters) Regulations 2012 are revoked as at the close of 27 February 2013.
Date of notification in Gazette: 1 March 2013.
This notice is administered by the Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives.
