Schedule 2 - Amendments of amending Acts
Items 1 and 2
41 Items 1 and 2 are related. Item 1 of Schedule 8 to the Broadcasting and Other Legislation Amendment (Deregulation) Act 2015 purported to amend section 43C of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 to repeal subsections 43C(4) to (4C) and insert a new subsection (4). However, the amendment was misdescribed as item 106 of Schedule 2 to the Omnibus Repeal Day (Autumn 2014) Act 2014 had already repealed those subsections, including an existing subsection (4). Items 1 and 2 correct the misdescription.
42 Schedule 1 to the Primary Industries Levies and Charges Collection (Consequential Provisions) Act 1991 purported to repeal section 35 of the Primary Industries and Energy Research and Development Act 1989. However, the amendment was misdescribed as the amendment incorrectly cited the Act as the Primary Industries and Energy Research and Development Act 1990. Item 3 corrects the misdescription.
