The Minister is worried about disaster tourism. An Order-in-Council is promulgated banning non-residents from entering the affected districts without permission from recovery commission.
The Minister decides that the upcoming local election is a distraction to the recovery process. The Local Electoral Act 2001 is suspended in Christchurch and surrounding districts, deferring local elections until June 2011, allowing Bob Parker to remain as Mayor until then.
The Minister decides that the residents of Christchurch deserves a break due to the stress they've been under. An Order-in-Council is passed exempting them from paying income tax. The income tax for non-Chch residents is increased in a corresponding fashion to ensure that the govt's books still balance.
The Minister decides more utility vehicles for the recovery process. An Order-in-Council passed to appropriate any such vehicle in the North Island. Farmers are outraged because of the effect on their livelihood and because they are sure that the Minister has misstated the need for utility vehicles. Clause 6(3) prevents any challenge to recommendation to promulgate an Order-in-Council on the basis that the appropriation of such vehicles is not reasonably necessary for the recovery. Clause 19 means no compensation is payable for the appropriation. The Regs Review Committee eventually considers the matter, but 3 months after the vehicles are seized and after farmers have suffered significant loss.
Feel free to add other examples.
