Remuneration Authority (Members of Parliament Remuneration) Amendment Bill


Proposed amendments

Metiria Turei, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clauses 5 to 8

Delete clauses 5 to 8 (page 2, line 20 to page 5, line 9).

Clause 11

Delete clause 11 (page 5, line 20 to page 6, line 10).

Schedule

In the Schedule, New Schedule 1AA delete clause 4 (page 8, lines 4 to 22).


Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Remuneration Authority (Members of Parliament Remuneration) Amendment Bill to delete all clauses relating to the new criterion for the Remuneration Authority, leaving only the Schedule to revoke the most recent pay rise as announced in the Parliamentary Salaries and Allowances Determination 2015. This would have the effect of taking the immediate step of stopping the most recent pay rise, but would then allow proper time to develop a new process for the Remuneration Authority to determine pay for members of Parliament.
