Dear Tabling Officer


Substitution of explanatory statement — Civil Aviation Order (Flight Crew Licensing) Repeal and Amendment Instrument 2014 (No. 1) – F2014L01177


I am writing to request the substitution of the explanatory statement (ES) that accompanied the instrument mentioned above.


On 25 September 2014, the Senate Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances wrote to the office of the Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development querying whether the ES correctly identified the commencement date of the instrument. In his letter to the Committee dated 1 October 2014, the Minister clarified the commencement date of the instrument. He also stated that, for clarification purposes, CASA had been asked to amend the ES to reflect that the commencement date of the Regulation, to which the commencement date of the instrument is linked, had been amended by a later Regulation.


In accordance with the Minister’s request, I would be grateful if the attached ES could be substituted for the ES tabled with the instrument mentioned above on 2 September 2014.


The Office of Parliamentary Counsel (OPC) has been notified of the change and a new electronic copy of the ES, identical to the attached hard copy, has been emailed to OPC.


Yours sincerely



[Signed A. Anastasi]
