        (3)         The Minister cannot make a recommendation under subsection (2) unless the Minister is satisfied, on the basis of the most recent report laid before each House of Parliament under the Land Information Authority Act 2006 section 93(2), that the expiry of section 131A should be postponed.

        (4)         There is no limit on the number of times the expiry of section 131A may be postponed, but each postponement cannot be for longer than 5 years beginning on the day after the most recent date on which section 131A would expire if that expiry were not postponed.

        (5)         The Interpretation Act 1984 section 42 applies to and in relation to a proclamation made under subsection (2) as if the proclamation were a regulation.

        (6)         The expiry of section 131A does not affect the validity of any regulations made under section 130 and in effect immediately before that expiry.
