Proposed amendments

Hon Dr Pita Sharples, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

New section 6C(1): to omit this subclause (lines 35 and 36 on page 6) and substitute the following subclauses:

  • (1) The Māori Trustee must appoint a Deputy Māori Trustee.

  • (1A) The Deputy Māori Trustee is an employee of the Māori Trustee.

New section 6C(2): to omit (if any) (line 5 on page 7).

New section 6D(2): to omit , if any (line 20 on page 7).

New section 6E(1): to omit (if any) (line 31 on page 7).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Māori Trustee Amendment Bill to require the Māori Trustee to appoint a Deputy Māori Trustee, rather than provide that power to the Māori Trust, the better to ensure continuity in the event of a vacancy in the office of the Māori Trustee. The appointee is an employee of the Māori Trustee.

The other amendments are required as a consequence of the amendments to new section 6C(1).
