Biosecurity Amendment Bill

Published: Tue 21 Aug 2001 02:32 PM
The Primary Production Committee is inviting public submissions on the Biosecurity Amendment Bill. The closing date for submissions is 24 September 2001.
The Biosecurity Amendment Bill changes the Biosecurity Act 1993 and repeals certain provisions of the Forests Act 1949. Part 1 relates to the exclusion, eradication and effective management of unwanted pests and organisms. Part 2 deals with the removal of redundant provisions in the Forests Act 1949, now covered by the Biosecurity Act 1993.
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.
