the eyes heaven question now is that Claus for Stan / Kim sorry took me a minute mr. chairman mr. Jim and I somewhat perplexed with regard to this next part part 4 which deals was scheduled two amendments to other aids and my question to the minister in that year is a relatively simple one none of these amendments and schedule 2 by my reading of them repeal any X so why have they been included in a statutes repeal bill it seems rather odd if these if this is a case of updating in the form that we might expect in a statute amendment bill and then it could have been included in that but this this bill the the very narrow purpose of this bill is to repeal and use it unused X and unused provisions in X and it seems to me that if we look at this on page 9 that we’re talking about here the first one there’s an amendment to insert additional provisions and the flags emblems and names Protection Act 1981 the next amendment inserts additional provisions in the government roading Powers Act of 1989 in particular around the Auckland Harbour Bridge which was rather fascinating the definition of what constitutes the Auckland Harbour Bridge there are further amendments to the Public Works Act of nineteen minutes to build under well funnily enough I’ll come to that hold their thought for just a moment I’m going to come to that but the Public Works Act of 1981 is amended by inserting additional provisions the state sector Act 1988 is amended by inserting additional provisions it seems to me that we’ve somewhat missed the purpose of the Act which was to repeal Act knotless insert additional provisions but mr.

Chairman I don’t want to make
