The Waitangi National Trust Board Amendment Bill has passed its final reading unopposed.

The bill seeks to address a potential conflict between the constitutional and trusteeship roles of the Governor-General and Ministers as ex officio members of the Waitangi National Trust Board. The bill also provides for the Trust Deed and the Waitangi National Trust Board Act 1932 to provide fixed terms of appointment for Board members.
