Resource Legislation Amendment Bill – Committee Stage (11) – Part 1


absolutely because I don’t think you’ve properly understood what I’m saying well you need to move then that the speaker be recalled I move the speaker be recalled the question is that the speaker be recalled days of that opinion with say I saw the contrary no they knows habit I’m calling the Honorable doctor next month mr. Chairman I just want to make a brief intervention to respond to a couple of points that members have raised mr. Twyford challenge the government on the use of national policy statements in national environment standards I would point out to that member that this government has achieved seven of those as compared to just two and the previous nine years this government has made more extensive use of in pieces than any esas than any other government second point which to make is that mr. Robertson made the claim about process actually this is a 300-page bill there’s only one sop in my name it makes no policy changes it simply addresses some of the well the member or I’ll give a moment reminder of the member he may remember in the light dying days of the previous government they introduced a 900-page sop under urgency on the emissions trading scheme bill that it passed through all stages actually this has been a very thorough process can I quickly deal with the issues of section 36 DD and one of the difficulties is that the RNA is so wide that counsel see it as a mandate to be able to for instance overall the parliaments decision around Watson earthquake-prone building this Parliament decided it was thirty-four percent of new building standards some council say we don’t agree with that we’re going to use the RMA to see a higher standard I’ve got other consoles that dont agree with the five-star installations to insulation standards and one overall that I’ve got other councils that are using the RMA to get into the areas of Fisheries regulations making different decisions around telecommunications and so what the 360 deep am actually does what I think is absolutely essential to this reform and that is that we avoid duplication or the other acts of parliament and being able to use section 36 DD to be able to pass regulations to ensure that those issues are not relitigate urine plans or in consent conditions is actually at the core of what we want to achieve with this legislation good quality environmental regulation but not duplicating our other areas and that is why that provision is included in the bill the time has come for me to leave a chair for the dinner break members debate is interrupted and I shall resume the chair at seven-thirty [Music]
