Supplementary Order Paper

Fisheries (Foreign Charter Vessels and Other Matters) Amendment Bill


Proposed amendments

Steffan Browning, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 2

In clause 2(1), replace 1 May 2016 (page 2, line 6) with 1 May 2015.

Heading above clause 9

In the heading above clause 9 (page 8, line 24), replace 1 May 2016 with 1 May 2015.


Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper would require the reflagging of foreign charter vessels from 1 May 2015, rather than by 1 May 2016 as the Bill currently proposes. This shorter transition period would demonstrate New Zealand’s commitment to addressing the issues concerning foreign charter vessels promptly, while still giving operators enough time to practically implement the required changes.
