Following the most recent meeting between representatives of the three signatories to the MoU (NZVVA, RNZRSA and the Crown) a recommendation is being made to the Minister for Veterans for a process to implement a new Prescribed Condition under the terms of the MoU. The MoU does not outline how new conditions might be added.
The process that has been developed and agreed by the representatives of the parties will speed up the adoption in New Zealand of any new conditions and expedite payments to veterans or surviving spouses that qualify for ex-gratia payments under the terms of the MoU in regard to Schedule 1 conditions.
The Working Group is pleased with the outcome and emphasises that there is no change to MOU.
