Te Atiawa Claims Settlement Bill

Proposed amendments

Hon Christopher Finlayson, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 63

After clause 63(8) (page 37, after line 14), insert:

(8A)

Section 72(3) applies to the revocation of the reserve status of Section 1 SO 483482 by subsection (2), as if the land were a cultural redress property.

Replace clause 63(10) (page 37, lines 17 and 18) with:

(10)

Sections 70(1), 71(1), and 72(1) and (4) apply to the vesting in the registered proprietors of computer freehold register TNG2/1258 by subsection (5), as if the land being vested were a cultural redress property.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Te Atiawa Claims Settlement Bill to make technical amendments that relate to the vesting of the Taumata property, which is a cultural redress property.

The amendment relates to property that is to be exchanged (exchange property) as part of the vesting of the Taumata property. The amendment enables the exchange property to be treated as a cultural redress property in specified circumstances (for example, sections 24 and 25 of the Reserves Act 1977 do not apply when the reserve status of the property is revoked and section 11 and Part 10 of the Resource Management Act 1991 do not apply to the vesting of the property).

Departmental disclosure statement

The Office of Treaty Settlements considers that a departmental disclosure statement is not required to be prepared for this Supplementary Order Paper.
