Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Legislation Bill

Proposed amendment

Hon Phil Twyford, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 2

In clause 2 (page 2, after line 7), insert as subclause (2):

(2)

An Order in Council made under this section is secondary legislation (see Part 3 of the Legislation Act 2019 for publication requirements).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper makes a minor and technical amendment to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Legislation Bill. The amendment to clause 2 provides that an Order in Council made under that clause to commence the Bill, once the Bill is enacted, is secondary legislation. This will ensure that, after the commencement of the Legislation Act 2019 on 28 October 2021, that Order in Council will be subject to the publication, presentation, and disallowance provisions of that Act rather than the current Legislation Act 2012. The Legislation Act 2012 is repealed on 28 October 2021 by section 10 of the Legislation (Repeals and Amendments) Act 2019 (see the Legislation (Repeals and Amendments) Act Commencement Order 2021).
