House of Representatives

Statute Law Revision Bill (No. 1) 2014

Explanatory Memorandum

(Circulated by authority of the Attorney-General, Senator the Hon George Brandis QC)

Schedule 5 - Legislative Assemblies

89 The items in this Schedule amend various provisions of Commonwealth Acts that incorrectly refer to "the Legislative Assembly for the Northern Territory". As subsection 13(1) of the Northern Territory (Self-Government) Act 1978 establishes a Legislative Assembly of the Northern Territory, these items amend those references so that they use "of" rather than "for".
