OUTLINE

 

This amendment to the Norfolk Island Amendment Bill 1999 removes the provisions in that Bill allowing for Commonwealth oversight of firearms legislation on Norfolk Island.

 

At the time of the Bill’s introduction, Norfolk Island firearms legislation did not comply with the National Firearms Agreement.  The Norfolk Island Legislative Assembly has since put in place legislation which complies with the National Firearms Agreement, as such the provisions in the Bill for Commonwealth oversight of Norfolk Island firearms legislation are no longer required.

This amendment has no budgetary impact.
