Judges’ Pensions Amendment Act 1979

No. 88 of 1979

An Act to amend the Judges’ Pensions Act 1968.

BE IT ENACTED by the Queen, and the Senate and House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia, as follows:

Short title, &c.

1. (1) This Act may be cited as the Judges’ Pensions Amendment Act 1979.

(2) The Judges’ Pensions Act 1968 is in this Act referred to as the Principal Act.

Commencement

2. This Act shall come into operation on the date fixed under section 2 of the Northern Territory Supreme Court (Repeal) Act 1979.

Interpretation

3. Section 4 of the Principal Act is amended

(a) by omitting “an internal Territory” from paragraph (a) of the definition of “Judge” in sub-section (1) and substituting “the Australian Capital Territory”; and

(b) by inserting after paragraph (a) of the definition of “prior judicial service” in sub-section (1) the following paragraph:

“(ab) service as a Judge or acting Judge of the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory, including that Court as in existence at any time before the commencement of the Northern Territory Supreme Court (Repeal) Act 1979;”.

Transitional

4. Where, immediately before the commencement of this Act, any benefit was payable under the Principal Act by reason of a person having been a Judge of the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory, the Principal Act continues to apply to and in respect of the person as if the amendment of that Act by paragraph 3(a) had not been made.
