Supplementary Order Paper No 354

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper proposes the following amendments to the Ngāti Pūkenga Claims Settlement Bill:

  • it amends clauses 6(2)(f), 13, and 14 to reflect the change in scope of the settlement reached with Ngāti Pūkenga, namely, that the settlement is not final as to the matters excluded by new clause 13(2A) as they relate to the Tauranga Moana:

  • it inserts a definition of Tauranga Moana (new clause 13A):

  • it amends clause 46 and deletes clause 47 as a consequence of a change to the policy for vesting shared redress; instead of a limited grace period, vesting will not occur until the last of the settlements relating to the cultural redress property of Te Tihi o Hauturu is enacted:

  • it makes amendments required as a consequence of the enactment of the Land Transfer Act 2017:

  • it updates the legal description of a cultural redress property (Schedule 2).
