Acts and regulations are available online through the New Zealand Legislation website. Acts are bills that have been passed by Parliament and have received the Royal assent. Regulations are not actions of the Parliament. Regulations are a lawmaking action made under the delegated authority of an Act.
Supplementary Order Papers (SOPs) set out proposed amendments to a bill. They may be in the name of a member or a Minister. An SOP may also set out a proposal to divide a bill.
Information on the order and grouping of amendments for the conduct of committee of the whole House business is provided where available. Supplementary Order Papers
