ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER COMMISSION AMENDMENT BILL 2004

 

 

SUPPLEMENTARY EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

 

 

 

Amendment to be Moved on Behalf of the Government

 

 

 

 

(Circulated by authority of the Minister for Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs, Senator the Honourable Amanda Vanstone)

 

 

 

 

Schedule 4, Item 67  - The Native Title Act 1993

 

This amendment seeks to correct a drafting error in the Bill.  Item 67, Schedule 4, in the Bill refers to “funds provided to a representative body” under the Native Title Act 1993 .  However the relevant subsection of the Native Title Act 1993 (subsection 203FE(3)) being amended concerns the funding of persons or bodies rather than of representative bodies.  The amendment seeks to correct this drafting error.
