---Defeated

Committee, we are on clause 24 of probably altogether around 120 clauses. We are about a quarter of the way through this, and everyone is getting a little testy, I can tell. What we are going to do is we are going to take a break, and we are going to come back after people have a few minutes to calm down and maybe get some fresh air. We are in recess.

---SHORT RECESS

Thanks, Mr. Chair. I move that subclause 24(13) of Bill 34 be deleted and the following substituted:

(13) If a zone is established under this section, any person seeking to apply for an instrument in that zone must apply in accordance with the regulations establishing that zone. If those regulations differ from the general regulations establishing this act and may not rely on the general regulations established under this act to apply for an instrument in that zone.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I know that is a mouthful. The drafting of this motion is to say that there are two sets of rules that apply, one inside a zone and one outside of a zone. The way this had been drafted, it looked like, to me, that there was the potential for two sets of rules to apply within a zone: the special rules established by the regulation setting up the zone and then the general regulations established under this act. That is what the purpose of this is. One set of rules, whether you are inside or outside of a zone. When you are inside, you live with the rules that are established by regulation to set up that zone. When you're outside, the general regulations apply, or conditions set out therein.

I think this provides some clarity. If you're inside a zone, one set of rules; you're outside, the other rules apply. Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I'd like to move a motion that paragraph 28(5)(a) of Bill 34 be amended by striking out the "settlement lands" and substituting "a settlement area." Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I'd like to know from the Minister if there are any provisions in section 28 that provide for a municipal government to receive notice of an application to record a claim, a mining claim? Thank you, Mr. Chair.
