This Supplementary Order Paper inserts new Part 22A into the Statutes Amendment Bill to amend the New Zealand Film Commission Act 1978 (the principal Act). The substantive amendments made by that new Part—

  • repeal section 19(3) of the principal Act, which limits the New Zealand Film Commission’s ability to give guarantees or indemnities exceeding an amount approved by the Minister of Finance; and

  • insert new Schedule 1AA (transitional, savings, and related provisions) into the principal Act to provide that no guarantee or indemnity given before the repeal of section 19(3) is invalid solely as a result of a failure to comply with that subsection.
