Judicature Modernisation Bill
Jacinda Ardern, in Committee, to move the following amendment:
After clause 3(d) (page 28, after line 8), insert:
(2) Nothing in this Act affects New Zealand's continuing commitment to the rule of law and the sovereignty of Parliament.
This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 3 of the Bill to ensure consistency with the Supreme Court Act 2003 and confirm the commitment to an important judicial and legislative principle that will otherwise be lost from the Bill.
