PORT AUGUSTA TO RED HILL RAILWAY.

 

No. 25 of 1935.

An Act to amend the Port Augusta to Red Hill Railway Act 1930.

[Assented to 13th April, 1935.]

Preamble.

WHEREAS by the Port Augusta to Red Hill Railway Act 1930 the Commonwealth Railways Commissioner appointed under the Commonwealth Railways Act 1917–1925 was empowered to construct a railway from Port Augusta to Red Hill in the State of South Australia:

And Whereas by the preamble to the Port Augusta to Red Hill Railway Act 1930 it was among other things recited that doubts had arisen as to whether the consent of the said State to the construction of the said railway by the Commonwealth was still in full force and effect:

And Whereas it was provided by the said Act that a proclamation fixing the date of the commencement of the said Act should not issue until the Governor-General, by notification published in the Gazette, declared that all such doubts had been removed:

And Whereas all such doubts have now been removed and there is now no doubt that the consent of the said State to the construction of the said railway by the Commonwealth is still in full force and effect:

Be it therefore enacted by the King’s Most Excellent Majesty, the Senate, and the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia, as follows:—
