Countering Terrorist Fighters Legislation Bill


Proposed amendments

Rt Hon John Key, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Heading to clause 4

In the heading to clause 4, replace section 45 (page 3, line 5) with sections 45 and 46.

Clause 5

In clause 5, replace section 45 (page 4, line 18) with section 46.

Clause 9: new section 4IF

After clause 9, new section 4IF(1)(e) (page 15, after line 11), insert:

  • (f) section 5AA (which permits the Director to delegate certain functions or powers relating to warrants, but not the function involved in applying for a warrant):

  • (g) section 5AAC (which requires delegations involving the execution of warrants to be entered in a register).


Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Countering Terrorist Fighters Legislation Bill. The amendments adjust the heading to clause 4 and a cross-reference in clause 5 to account for the inclusion of new section 46 of the Passports Act 1992.

The amendments also add new paragraphs that relate to delegations into new section 4IF of the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service Act 1969 (which lists certain provisions of that Act that will apply to authorisations to undertake warrantless surveillance). The addition of a reference to section 5AA will ensure that the Director cannot delegate any function or power involved in applying for an authorisation, but can delegate a function or power involved in executing an authorisation. The addition of a reference to section 5AAC will require any delegation of a function or power involved in executing an authorisation to be entered in a register of delegations involving warrants.
