Education Amendment Bill

Hon Nikki Kaye, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

The Minister must ensure that at least 50% plus 1 of the members of the combined council are members appointed by the council.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Education Amendment Bill. The intent of this amendment is to ensure that a controlling interest of the combined council is held by members appointed by the council, or at least to ensure that members that are not appointed by the council do not hold a controlling interest. This is laid out in a clear and precise manner, providing clarity to those involved.
