Ngā Rohe Moana o Ngā Hapū o Ngāti Porou Bill (No 2)

Proposed amendment

Hon Anne Tolley, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 102

After clause 102(4) (page 58, after line 10), insert:

(5)

Before recognising a wāhi tapu under this section, the responsible Minister must ensure that the wāhi tapu is consistent with the conditions as set out in section 79 of the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 102 of the Ngā Rohe Moana o Ngā Hapū o Ngāti Porou Bill (No 2) to include a requirement that a wāhi tapu be consistent with the conditions as set out in section 79 of the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011. In the Bill, the recognition of wāhi tapu by a court order may affect the exercise of fishing rights, but must not do so to the extent that the conditions prevent fishers from taking their lawful entitlement in a quota management area or fisheries management area. There is not similar protection for wāhi tapu recognised by Crown agreement.
