Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper makes technical amendments to the Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau Collective Redress Bill. For the most part, the amendments are very minor and for one of three reasons—clarification, consistency (both internally and with other settlement legislation), and the correction of cross-references and typographical errors. Amendments that do not fall within those three categories are explained in more detail below.

The first of those amendments relates to clause 2 of the Bill, which is the commencement clause. The amendment replaces the scheme for commencement of the Bill by Order in Council with a fixed commencement date. All post-settlement governance entities necessary for the purposes of the Bill have been legally constituted and, therefore, the need for a delayed commencement is no longer necessary (except in relation to those clauses to which clause 2(1) currently applies).

The second of those amendments relates to the definition of the Waiohua Tāmaki rōpū entity in clause 8(1). The entity has been constituted with a different name to that advised at the time the Bill was drafted. This amendment corrects the anomaly.

Clause 36(2) and (5) and clause 7(2) and (5) of Schedule 6 are amended by replacing the specific reference to the classification of Maungauika as a historic reserve subject to section 18 of the Reserves Act 1977 with a general reference to the classification under that Act that Maungauika holds at the time that those provisions are triggered. This is because it may be the case that the reserve classification has been changed in the interim period (as is permitted under clause 40(4)).

The SOP inserts new clause 36A into the Bill to guarantee access to the Tūpuna Taonga o Tāmaki Makaurau Trust Limited (the trustee for the iwi and hapū of the Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau Collective in which the maunga and other cultural property is vested under the Bill) to certain buildings on Maungauika, if the trustee purchases the buildings from the Crown. The SOP also inserts an equivalent clause, new clause 7A, into Schedule 6 of the Bill. This clause provides the same guarantees to the trustee if the buildings are purchased after the administration of Maungauika is transferred from the Crown to the Maunga Authority, the statutory entity created by Part 3 of the Bill.

The amendments in respect of clause 163 and new Schedule 5 relate to the consequential amendments to the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Act 2000 (the Marine Park Act) in clause 163 of the Bill. Section 33 of the Marine Park Act establishes the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park (the Park) and describes the land and waters contained within it. Clause 163(2) and (3) of the Bill amends that section to include 3 more areas within the Park.

It is now anticipated that several other areas are to be included within the park as the result of the settlement of other historical Treaty claims. This will pose a challenge to the structure of section 33 of the Marine Park Act. It also presents some difficulties for the inclusion of the necessary amendments in the relevant settlement legislation of those other claims. To avoid these problems, it is preferable for a schedule to be inserted into the Marine Park Act, the purpose of which will be to describe all land included in the Park that is Treaty-settlement related.

To effect this, the following amendments to the Bill are included in this SOP:

  • a new Schedule 5 is added to the Marine Park Act by way of Schedule 7 of the Bill; and

  • clause 163(2) is amended to provide that Treaty-settlement land described in new Schedule 5 is land within the Park (and the land that was to be inserted by that subclause (by adding new paragraphs (h) and (i) to section 33(2) of the Marine Park Act) is instead simply included in the new Schedule 5); and

  • clause 163(3) is amended so that the land that was to be inserted by that subclause (by adding a new paragraph (j) to section 33(2) of the Marine Park Act) will instead be inserted by that subclause into new Schedule 5 when that subclause comes into force (see current clause 2(1)). The land to which clause 163(3) relates is the Maungauika (North Head) maunga, and, in keeping with the overarching scheme of the Bill in respect of that maunga, its inclusion in the park is conditional on the Auckland Council assuming administrative responsibility for the maunga from the Department of Conservation. Accordingly, the commencement of clause 163(3) is delayed until this condition is met.

The amendments to clauses 165 and 166 fully implement the policy intention of the consequential amendments to the Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara Claims Settlement Act 2013 and the Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Claims Settlement Act 2013, being that the redress provided in this Bill forms part of the final settlement of historic claims of those iwi.

The amendments to Schedule 6 refine the provisions that relate to the administration of Maungauika in order to ensure that there is a smooth transition from the requirements in the body of the Bill (mostly contained in subparts 2 and 4 of Part 2) that relate to administration of the maunga by the Crown to those in Schedule 6 that relate to administration of the maunga by the Maunga Authority.
