and cricket). '''Outdoor Recreation New Zealand''' (sometimes abbreviated as '''ORNZ''') is a small political party in New Zealand. It is primarily based around the hunting and fishing lobbies, but also includes other people who participate in other outdoor sports. The party states its goal as being to fight "the rapid erosion of sporting rights, resources and opportunities for outdoor sportspeople", claiming that current environmental policies impose unreasonable restrictions. The '''Imperial War Cabinet''' was created by British (United Kingdom) Prime Minister (Prime Minister of the United Kingdom) David Lloyd George in the spring of 1917 as a means of co-ordinating the British Empire's military policy during the First World War (World War I). The body met through 1917 and 1918 and consisted of Lloyd George, Prime Minister of Canada Sir Robert Borden, Prime Minister Louis Botha and Jan Smuts of South Africa, Prime Minister Billy Hughes of Australia, Prime Minister William Massey of New Zealand, the Secretary of State for India, Sir James Meston (James Meston, 1st Baron Meston) and other senior ministers from Britain and the dominions. In some places (for example New Zealand (for the second-phase Restricted licence, but not the final Full licence), Belgium, China, Estonia, Dominican Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Jordan, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Turkey, U.A.E (United Arab Emirates) and the UK), when a driver takes the licensing road test using an automatic transmission, the resulting license is restricted to the use of automatic transmissions. This treatment of the manual transmission skill seems to maintain the widespread use of the manual transmission. As many new drivers worry that their restricted licence will become an obstacle for them where most cars have manual transmissions, they make the effort to learn with manual transmissions and obtain full licences. Some other countries (such as India, Italy, Pakistan, Malaysia, Serbia, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine and Denmark) go even further, whereby the licence is granted only when a test is passed on a manual transmission. In Denmark and Brazil drivers are allowed to take the test on an automatic if they are handicapped, but with such a licence they will not be allowed to drive a car with a manual transmission.

By 1863, 'Big School', the first of the stone buildings, had been built on the west side of the quadrangle (Quadrangle (architecture)) in which all classes were taught (in present day it is the schools library with additions by Sir Miles Warren and currently the oldest educational building still in use in New Zealand), followed in 1867 by the Chapel. The school developed slowly around this central quadrangle, and today the 'quad' is treated with reverence, and therefore students are not permitted to walk on it, only staff members and permitted visitors.

New Zealand

'''New Zealand''' ( south of the Pacific island areas (Pacific Islands) of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity (Biodiversity of New Zealand) of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

Polynesians settled New Zealand in 1250–1300 CE and developed a distinctive Māori culture. Abel Tasman, a Dutch explorer, was the first European to sight New Zealand in 1642 CE. History of New Zealand. Newzealand.com. In 1840, representatives of the British Crown and Māori Chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi, making New Zealand a British colony (Colony of New Zealand). Today, the majority of New Zealand's population (New Zealanders) of 4.5 million is of European descent (New Zealand European); the indigenous Māori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and Pacific Islanders. Reflecting this, New Zealand's culture (Culture of New Zealand) is mainly derived from Māori and early British settlers, with recent broadening arising from increased immigration (Immigration to New Zealand). The official languages are English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language, with English predominant. The country's economy was historically dominated by the export of wool, but exports of dairy products, meat, and wine, along with tourism, are more significant today.

Nationally, legislative authority is vested in an elected, unicameral Parliament (Parliament of New Zealand), while executive political power is exercised by the Cabinet (Cabinet of New Zealand), led by the Prime Minister (Prime Minister of New Zealand), who is currently John Key. Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth II) is the country's head of state and is represented by a Governor-General (Governor-General of New Zealand). In addition, New Zealand is organised into 11 regional councils (Regions of New Zealand) and 67 territorial authorities (Territorial authorities of New Zealand) for local government purposes. The Realm of New Zealand also includes Tokelau (a dependent territory); the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing states in free association (Associated state) with New Zealand); and the Ross Dependency, which is New Zealand's territorial claim in Antarctica (territorial claims in Antarctica). New Zealand is a member of the United Nations, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Pacific Islands Forum and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.
