(Circulated by authority of the Attorney-General, the Honourable Philip Ruddock MP)

General outline and financial impact statement

General Outline

The main purpose of this Bill is to correct technical errors that have occurred in Acts as a result of drafting and clerical mistakes. The Bill also repeals a number of Acts, and provisions of Acts, that are obsolete. The corrections and repeals are desirable in order to improve the quality of the text of Commonwealth legislation and, in particular, to facilitate the publication of consolidated versions of Acts by the Attorney-General's Department and by private publishers of legislation. None of the corrections make any change to the substance of the law.

Financial Impact

The Bill will have no financial impact.
