Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - I move:

After sub-clause (6) insert the following new sub-clause:- (6a) The Governor-General may, by Proclamation, fix a date as the date on and after which proceedings under this Act may not be instituted in or transferred to a court of summary jurisdiction in a Slate or Territory or in a part of a State or Territory specified in the Proclamation and a court of summary jurisdiction shall not hear and determine any such proceedings so instituted in, or transferred to, that court on or after that date.".

This clause enables the phasing out of courts of summary jurisdiction particularly in the cities. The proposed phasing out is in accordance with the recommendations of the Standing Committee.

Suggest corrections
