Tabling—Revised Explanatory Statement for the Disability Services (Administration of Part II of the Act) Guidelines 2013

Attention: Assistant Legislation Officer

1.         On 12 February 2014 the Senate Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances wrote to the Assistant Minister for Social Services, seeking a revision to the explanatory statement of the Disability Services (Administration of Part II of the Act) Guidelines 2013.   The Committee requested that information about consultation be included in the explanatory statement, as required by the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

2.         The Office of Parliamentary Counsel advise that the original explanatory statement will be made available on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments once the revised explanatory statement has been tabled in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, with the original explanatory statement being retained as supporting material (see F2013L02002).

3.         The original explanatory statement was tabled with the legislative instrument in the Senate on 2 December 2013.  The revised explanatory statement includes consultation information so that it conforms to the requirements of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

4.         I would be grateful if you would arrange for the attached revised explanatory statement to be tabled in the Senate.  I have enclosed two copies of the revised explanatory statement.

5.         Thank you for your assistance.
