This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Māori Trustee Amendment Bill to require the Māori Trustee to appoint a Deputy Māori Trustee, rather than provide that power to the Māori Trust, the better to ensure continuity in the event of a vacancy in the office of the Māori Trustee. The appointee is an employee of the Māori Trustee.
The other amendments are required as a consequence of the amendments to new section 6C(1).
