Public Works Committee Regulations (Amendment) 1993 No. 57


Statutory Rules 1993 No. 57

Issued by the Authority of the Minister for Arts and Administrative Services

Public Works Committee Act 1969

Public Works Committee Regulations (Amendment)

Section 40 of the Public Works Committee Act 1969 (the Act) provides that the GovernorGeneral may make regulations for the purposes of the Act. The attached statutory rules amend the Public Works Committee Regulations (the Regulations) made pursuant to the Act.

Subsection 6A(1) provides that the Act applies to all authorities of the Commonwealth (which include companies controlled by the Commonwealth) other than certain bodies specified in subsection 6A(2) or which are declared in the Regulations pursuant to subsection 6A(3). Qantas and Australian Airlines are currently declared pursuant to subsection 6A(3) but Part 1 of the Schedule to the Qantas Sale Act 1992 will amend subsection 6A(2) to specifically provide in the Act itself that neither is an authority to which the Act applies. It is intended that this amendment take effect from the date of sale of 25% of shares in Qantas, which occurred on 10 March 1993.

The references to Qantas and Australian Airlines in the Regulations will therefore no longer have effect and will accordingly be omitted at the same time as the amendment to the principal Act.

To this end, these Regulations amend the Regulations to remove Australian Airlines (Item 8) and Qantas (Item 20) from Schedule 3.

The commencement of the Regulation is tied to Part 2 of the Schedule to the Qantas Sale Act 1992 which will commence at the same time as Part 1 of the Schedule.
