This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
Regulation 4 inserts new regulation 64B, which prescribes the additional fee payable under section 269A of the Land Transport Act 1998 (the Act) in respect of certain classes of RUC vehicles as specified in new Part 2AC of Schedule 5. That new Part is inserted by regulation 5. Section 269A authorises the prescribing of an additional fee in respect of all or certain classes of RUC vehicles that are operated on road and are exempt from road user charges under section 38 or 38A of the Road User Charges Act 2012.
Section 270 of the Act applies to these regulations because the additional fee is, under section 269A(2)(a) of the Act, to be treated as land transport revenue for the purposes of the Land Transport Management Act 2003. These regulations are a confirmable instrument under section 47B of the Legislation Act 2012. They are revoked at the close of 30 June 2017, unless earlier confirmed by an Act of Parliament. That stated time is the applicable deadline under section 47C(1)(a) of the Legislation Act 2012.
