every amendment to every part of the RMA it’s very difficult for us to bring all of these issues to the attention of the house Mecca five do you know career mr. speaker just following on from my colleague David Parker and his contribution see I want to focus on the part of the bill which is 58 in which talks about the initiation of the or are all here plans in I want to fall on my colleagues statement around the SOP of the mighty party madam ER Fox who can explain an author join in the clear I guess I campaign that was taken upon growers in Hawke’s Bay particularly put pure Hawke’s Bay in a wee leaders ely leaders of naughty co- around ensuring that the broad powers and I’m going off my original statement see about proper law but it’s important then I start off with the book hours that the minister gave himself through this passage of the bill but to acknowledge the SOP that has been presented on the floor by the ahmadi party and I’m keen to hear the change in which that change has come about from them but I do want to acknowledge those their campaign sear on getting the minister to make the allowance in this bill around ring-fencing GE free crops from the broad powers that the minister has which then leads me sir to the lost opportunity of the multi-party or the much much bigger gains that this bill is intending to do which is obviously regions that may for example to want to halt oil and gas exploration India door here does this bringing down of the ministers ministerial powers address the ability for councils to actually been all in gas from the region’s does this particular clause of empowering that the minister has allow councils at all the minister or the member can get up and respond to it but I’m really keen to hear from the minister in terms of the reducing of his powers to ensure that local councils can make such decisions and their regional plans and whether the minister is contemplating whether there has broad powers will allow it to happen or will the Minister step in and make changes but serious back to you lot all here plans and it goes on from my second and I’m talking about section 50 80 and my second contribution and the second reading of this bill I mentioned the existing here we I guess mechanisms and co governance or co-management arrangements that they had with councils and see if I can just draw your attention to the original regulatory and peak statement prepared by the Ministry of Environment if i can get point out point 203 paragraph 203 in the regulatory impact statement the minister’s own officials note that eighty-three percent sewer of local authorities currently have existing arrangement with marty be it through memorandums of understanding joint committees advisory boards and forums so the gained at the mighty party believe that they’ve got four ely it’s interesting because he’s already 83 they’d have some sort of arrangements right there in the real ettore our statement by his own officials i also see in the second speak mentioned 124 Irian hapu through these treaty sea treaty settlements already have these existing arrangements but so it’s not so much what I think it’s what II we Modi submitters came to the city committee and presented to the committee Syria and I want to highlight some of those ue organizations like to do now one writer who like our very own the Hawke’s Bay Regional Planning Committee see which has 90 e with and my electric doherty now everyone wants a streamline and improve our ma systems and we understand that’s the intent of the spill ship but what are we Marty sit in these submissions to the Select Committee as they didn’t want their existing obligate existing arrangements with councils undermined and put at risk with a sponsor and there’s been no answer to how this bill and what part of the clauses that acknowledged that the Erie and mahipal have existing arrangements are going to be protected under the spill sir these are the questions that I you know perhaps the minister can address them because it was a serious concern raised by maharaja tongue or two which is a recently settled here we but suit mr. Partridge here but when you look through the bill as you’ll also note in addition to the risk perceived or real from them here we Marty submit as they can before the Select Committee to ensure not tiny was another entity that they’re also submitted so sue there is a quiet actually a real disquiet amongst Ely Marty particularly the settle ones around whether whether these are mother corner horn or overall here arrangements are actually going to enhance or Portuguese idea the treaty arrangements and the risk but here the the other point that I want to draw the houses can comics to an intersection of mana who not at all he plans is the issue around the place of yo en su as a committee meeting member I racism Select Committee around vishal’s getting absolutely clear that you can have erie organizations for for example not eco- incorporated as guaranteed another Marty fisheries Exia but then you’ve got new post settlement government entities who may not be no terminated for example it could be money how did he tell you to you so I’ve raises several times when we were reporting back from the officials around potential confusion of who is actually supposed to be benefiting from this particular clause and perhaps again I invite the minister to explain how he is going to manage entities that are we under one legislation but for the purpose of treaty settlements have a different title sir like my colleague David Parker there are other parts of the bill sue that I do want to address but I wanted to start getting the Hanoi and the ministerial broad powers addressed and so that we ensuring that that we are acknowledging the regional decision-making that councils are protected and that the minister could perhaps identify where he would apply his broad-based powers under what circumstances or give some assurances to some very progressive local government organizations out there who enter into long-term plans ten fifteen twenty five-year plans understanding their region better than central government and need some assurances from this minister particularly that those obligations and rights are put at risk yatim’s michaela mr. children mr.
