Dairy Industry Amendment Bill
The Primary Production Committee is inviting public submissions on the Dairy Industry Amendment Bill. The closing date for submissions is Thursday, 27 April 2000. Late submissions will not have the opportunity to give oral evidence.
The bill will amend the Dairy Industry Act 1952 for the purpose of implementing the European Union (EU) requirement that the issuing of EU Import Monitoring Arrangement (IMA) certificates covering country-specific butter and cheese quotas be transferred from the New Zealand Dairy Board to the New Zealand Government. The bill is required to be enacted by 1 July 2000 in order to give effect to the agreement reached between European Commission and New Zealand officials.
Copies of the bill can be purchased from Bennetts Government Bookshops.
The committee requires 20 copies of each submission. Those wishing to include any information of a private or personal nature in a submission should first discuss this with the clerk of the committee, as submissions are usually released to the public by the committee. Those wishing to appear before the committee to speak to their submissions should state this clearly and provide a daytime telephone contact number. For further guidance on making a submission, our publication Making a Submission to a Parliamentary Select Committee can be found on our web site at www.clerk.parliament.govt.nz.
