PART 4 - AMENDMENT, REPEAL AND EXPIRY OF ACTS  

SECTION 11B   AMENDING ACT TO BE CONSTRUED WITH AMENDED ACT  

11B(1)  
Every Act amending another Act must be construed with the other Act as part of the other Act.

11B(2)  
If:


(a) an Act (the amending Act ) amends another Act (the principal Act ); and


(b) a provision (the non-amending provision ) of the amending Act does not amend the principal Act, but relates to an amendment of the principal Act made by another provision of the amending Act; and


(c) a term is used in the non-amending provision that has a particular meaning in the principal Act or in a provision of the principal Act amended or included by the amending Act;

then the term has that meaning in the non-amending provision.

Note:

Subsection (2) covers, for example, application, transitional and saving items in a Schedule to an amending Act that relate to amendments of a principal Act made by other items in the Schedule.

11B(3)  
Subsection (2) does not limit subsection (1).
