(1)  
A reference in a law of the Commonwealth to an offence against a law of the Commonwealth (including this Code) includes a reference to an offence against section 11.1 (attempt), 11.4 (incitement) or 11.5 (conspiracy) of this Code that relates to such an offence.

(2)  
A reference in a law of the Commonwealth (including this Code) to a particular offence includes a reference to an offence against section 11.1 (attempt), 11.4 (incitement) or 11.5 (conspiracy) of this Code that relates to that particular offence.

(3)  
Subsection (1) or (2) does not apply if a law of the Commonwealth is expressly or impliedly to the contrary effect.

(4)  
In particular, an express reference in a law of the Commonwealth to:


(a) an offence against, under or created by the Crimes Act 1914 ; or


(b) an offence against, under or created by a particular provision of the Crimes Act 1914 ; or


(c) an offence arising out of the first-mentioned law or another law of the Commonwealth; or


(d) an offence arising out of a particular provision; or


(e) an offence against, under or created by the Taxation Administration Act 1953 ;

does not mean that the first-mentioned law is impliedly to the contrary effect.

Note:

Sections 11.2 (complicity and common purpose), 11.2A (joint commission), and 11.3 (commission by proxy) of this Code operate as extensions of principal offences and are therefore not referred to in this section.
