Statutes Amendment Bill
Hon Chester Borrows, in Committee, to move the following amendments:
Delete clause 2(3) (line 12 on page 10).
Delete Part 25 (on pages 41 and 42).
This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Statutes Amendment Bill to make the following technical amendments:
clause 2(3) of the Bill as introduced was to commence Part 11 (which amends the Extradition Act 1999) on 1 June 2013 to coincide with the commencement of the relevant provision of the Crimes Act 1961. As 1 June 2013 is now in the past, clause 2(3) is being deleted to enable Part 11 to commence on Royal assent like most of the rest of the Statutes Amendment Bill:
Part 25, which amends Part 2 of Schedule 1 of the Summary Proceedings Act 1957, is no longer required because Schedule 1 of the Summary Proceedings Act 1957 was repealed on 1 July 2013 by section 7(2) of the Summary Proceedings Amendment Act (No 2) 2011.
The Ministry of Justice considers that a departmental disclosure statement is not required to be prepared for this Supplementary Order Paper.
