Acts Interpretation Act 1901

(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.
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).
