Revision programme

The Legislation Act 2012 introduced a mechanism for systematically revising the presentation of some New Zealand statutes to make them more accessible. After being revised, they are introduced as revision Bills into Parliament for re-enactment.

The revision powers that can be applied and the revision process are set out in subpart 3 of Part 2 of the Act.

A revision programme sets out the statutes to be revised over each three-year period coinciding with a parliamentary term.

On 16 March 2021 the Attorney-General presented the Chief Parliamentary Counsel’s Report on Subpart 3 of Part 2 of the Legislation Act 2012 to Parliament. The report reviews the operation and effectiveness of the revision requirements in Subpart 3 as at 30 June 2020.

Proposed revision programme for 2021–2023

The Parliamentary Counsel Office consulted on the 2021–2023 revision programme from 29 January to 12 March 2021 on behalf of the Attorney-General.
