Auckland Harbour Board Bill
Auckland Harbour Board Bill.
The Auckland Harbour Board having prepared a Bill for sub-mission to the House during last session, your Committee took steps to see that this Chamber should be duly represented in the proposed new Constitution.
The Bill was not passed, but a new Bill for the reconstruction of the Harbour Board has been drafted to be brought before the House during the coming session.
This Bill has not yet come under the consideration of your Committee, but they understand that the representation of this Chamber is provided for by one of its members being eligible for appointment by the Chamber.
It is also understood that the representation of Onehunga on the Board, which was provided for in the former Bill, has been eliminated. In the opinion of your Committee it is a matter of regret that there should be a divided control of the two harbours, seeing that their proximity must lead to a close identification of interests.
