Attorney-General’s (Spent and Redundant Instruments) Repeal Regulation 2013 – amended Explanatory Statement

Enclosed is an amended Explanatory Statement for the legislative instrument Attorney-General’s (Spent and Redundant Instruments) Repeal Regulation 2013.  The legislative instrument was made under section 48E of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 (the LIA) and was required to repeal 1005 legislative instruments administered by the Attorney-General’s Department that are either spent or redundant.  The legislative instrument implements the changes made in 2012 to the LIA as recommended by the 2008 Review of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 and the 2010 Department of Finance and Deregulation Review of the pre-2008 Commonwealth subordinate legislation and other regulation to repeal the large number of legislative instruments that are probably spent or redundant.

The Explanatory Statement was amended to replace the reference “Section 5” with “Section 7” on the fourth page under the heading Section 7 Repeal of amending and repealing instruments containing other provisions.

Yours sincerely
