End of Life Choice Bill

Proposed amendment

Melissa Lee, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 25

Delete clause 25 (page 17, lines 13 to 15).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the End of Life Choice Bill to delete clause 25. That clause, if implemented, creates an unreasonable burden on New Zealand insurers, particularly those in the life insurance community where the policies may have been written a number of years in advance of this law’s proposal. Such a law change has the potential to affect premiums in the insurance market.
