Policing (Cost Recovery) Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Poto Williams, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 5

After clause 5, new section 102A(d) (page 5, after line 30), insert as subsection (2):

(2)

Regulations made under subsection (1) must exempt charitable entities, as defined in section 4 of the Charities Act 2005, from any fee or charge prescribed for specified demand services.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 5, new section 102A, to exempt registered charities from any fee or charge prescribed for specified demand services. This would mean that community and voluntary groups would continue to access police vetting services but be exempt from charges or fees for conducting this vetting.
