Does the Interpretation Act 1999 apply to War Pensions Act past individual pensioner decisions

christhelawyer : HiWelcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
christhelawyer : The application section of the Interpretation Act says -
christhelawyer : 4Application(1)This Act applies to an enactment that is part of the law of New Zealand and that is passed either before or after the commencement of this Act unless—(a)the enactment provides otherwise; or(b)the context of the enactment requires a different interpretation.(2)The provisions of this Act also apply to the interpretation of this Act.
christhelawyer : So it should apply to the War Pensions Act,
Customer:

Thank you -so the desion made by a Governement department staff member can over ride the decision made by the legally defined decision makers under the War Pensions Act?

christhelawyer : I would not think so. The persons with the power to decide should have the last word, not bureaucrats reading the decision.
Customer:

Thank you for your help
