Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Bill (No 3)
Su’a William Sio, in Committee, to move the following amendment:
After clause 11(6) (page 16, after line 34), insert:
(7) Where as a result of a review under subsection (1) a local authority proposes to change delivery to be carried out by a body other than the authority, they must consult on the proposal in a manner that gives effect to the requirements of section 82.
This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 11 of the Bill to ensure that the review provisions are not used as a way of increasing the contracting out or privatisation of Council services by ensuring the public is consulted before any change.
