Technical Amendments Guidelines and Practice Note

These are guidelines and a practice note for technical amendments, particularly technical amendments made in statute law amendment bills. A statute law amendment bill is generally presented in spring and autumn sitting periods of the Legislative Assembly each year. Statute law amendment bills are used to update legislation and make it consistent. They also make minor corrections to legislation. Examples of Statute Law Amendment Acts can be found on the legislation register.
