Education Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Jo Hayes, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 14A

Delete clause 14A (page 6, lines 30 to 33).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Education Amendment Bill. Clause 14A has been poorly drafted and conflates the issue of appointments to combined councils. Ministers must ensure that a combined council has an even balance between members appointed by the Minister and members appointed by the council, in order to ensure that decisions will be considered adequately from varying perspectives.
