Ordinance No. 2, 2015 Ordinances/Norfolk Island as amended, taking into account amendments up to Norfolk Island Legislation Amendment (Fees) Ordinance 2018
This Ordinance ensures that existing Norfolk Island laws (continued in force under s 16 and new 16A of the Norfolk Island Act 1979) function effectively under the new governance arrangements established by the Norfolk Island Amendment Act 2015. It does this by establishing general interpretive rules that will apply to the majority of Norfolk Island enactments, and making specific amendments to other Norfolk Island laws where the application of the general rules was not appropriate. The ‘general rules’ approach was designed to avoid the need to individually amend each Norfolk Island enactment, where generally applicable rules could provide for an effective outcome for administering the continuing laws.

1  Name

                   This is the Norfolk Island Continued Laws Ordinance 2015.

3  Authority

                   This Ordinance is made under section 19A of the Norfolk Island Act 1979.

4  Simplified outline of this Ordinance

Under sections 16 and 16A of the Norfolk Island Act 1979, certain laws that were in force immediately before the interim transition time (18 June 2015) continue in force and form part of the law of the Territory. In this Ordinance, these laws are called “continued laws”. The continued laws include laws of the Legislative Assembly and laws made under Legislative Assembly laws

Continued laws may be amended or repealed by an Ordinance made under section 19A of the Norfolk Island Act 1979 or by a law made under such an Ordinance. An Ordinance may also suspend the operation of a continued law for a period.

This Ordinance amends and repeals continued laws as set out in the items in the Schedules to this Ordinance.

The items are to be read together with the continued laws in order to understand the operation of the continued laws in the Territory. The items continue in effect according to their terms from time to time and may be amended or repealed by subsequent Ordinances or by rules made under this Ordinance.

                     (b)  to make application, saving or transitional provision in relation to any amendments or repeals of continued laws.

             (2)  To avoid doubt, the rules may not do the following:

                     (a)  create an offence or civil penalty;

                     (b)  provide powers of:

                              (i)  arrest or detention; or

                             (ii)  entry, search or seizure;

                     (c)  impose a tax.

7  Schedules

             (1)  Each continued law that is specified in a Schedule to this Ordinance is amended or repealed as set out in the applicable items in the Schedule, and any other item in a Schedule to this Ordinance has effect according to its terms.

             (2)  The amendments and repeals, and any other items, set out in the Schedules to this Ordinance continue in effect according to their terms from time to time.

                     (b)  in a transfer journal;

in sufficient detail that the transfer may be clearly understood.

             (5)  The records of receipts, disbursements and transfers must be made by the manager in accordance with this clause in the order in which the receipts, disbursements or transfers are received or made, each such record being made within 2 business days after the receipt, disbursement or transfer in question.

             (1)  This section applies to an instrument (the key instrument) that an enactment:

                     (a)  confers power to make; and

                     (b)  expressly provides is a disallowable instrument for the purposes of this section.

             (2)  If the key instrument is not a legislative instrument (within the meaning of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 or the Legislation Act 2003 of the Commonwealth) section 12 (commencement of instruments) of that Act, as in force from time to time, applies to the key instrument as if it were a legislative instrument.

Note:          On the commencement of Schedule 1 to the Acts and Instruments (Framework Reform) Act 2015 of the Commonwealth, the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 of the Commonwealth will become the Legislation Act 2003 of the Commonwealth.

             (3)  A copy of the key instrument must be given to the Commonwealth Minister within 14 days after it is made.

             (4)  If a copy of the key instrument is not given to the Commonwealth Minister within 14 days after it is made, the instrument ceases to have effect as if it were repealed by an enactment at the end of 14 days after it is made.

             (5)  The Commonwealth Minister may, by notice in the Gazette, disallow the key instrument, or part of it, within 65 days after a copy of the instrument is given to him or her.

             (6)  If the key instrument, or part of it, is disallowed, the instrument or part ceases to have effect as if it were repealed by an enactment when it is disallowed.

             (7)  If:

                     (a)  the key instrument, or part of it, ceases to have effect under subsection (4) or (6) at a time (the cessation time); and

                     (b)  before the cessation time, the key instrument or part amended or repealed another instrument, or part of another instrument, (the earlier instrument) that was in force immediately before the amendment or repeal;

the earlier instrument (as in force immediately before the amendment or repeal) revives at the cessation time as if the key instrument had not been made. This has effect despite subsections (4) and (6) of this section and subsection 7(1) and paragraph 7(2)(a) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 of the Commonwealth as applying because of section 8A of this Act.

             (8)  Another instrument that is, or contains one or more provisions that are, the same in substance as the key instrument or a provision of the key instrument must not be made, without the agreement of the Commonwealth Minister, during the period:

                     (a)  starting when the key instrument is made; and

                     (b)  ending:

                              (i)  if the key instrument ceases to have effect at a time under subsection (4)—at that time; or

                             (ii)  if a copy of the key instrument is given to the Commonwealth Minister under subsection (3) and neither the key instrument nor any part of it is disallowed—65 days after the copy is given to the Commonwealth Minister; or

                            (iii)  if the key instrument or part of it is disallowed—6 months after the disallowance.

             (9)  An instrument made in contravention of subsection (8) has no effect.

Schedule 1Administration of enactments at and after the interim transition time

Note:       See section 43.

Part 1Introduction

  

1  Object of this Schedule

                   The main object of this Schedule is to provide for the administration of enactments (other than section 19A Ordinances) at or after the interim transition time by certain persons other than those mentioned in the enactments immediately before that time, to take account of amendments made by the Norfolk Island Legislation Amendment Act 2015 of the Commonwealth affecting the institutions and machinery of government of Norfolk Island.

2  Definitions

                   In this Schedule:

Minister has the same meaning as it had in this Act as in force immediately before the interim transition time.

3  This Schedule does not apply to section 19A Ordinances

                   This Schedule does not affect a section 19A Ordinance.

4  This Schedule does not apply in relation to section 8A of this Act

                   To avoid doubt, this Schedule does not affect provisions of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 of the Commonwealth as they apply in relation to enactments because of section 8A of this Act.

Part 2Commonwealth Minister’s roles

Division 1Commonwealth Minister’s roles

Subdivision AGeneral rule

5  Roles belonging to a Minister, an executive member or the Administrator before the interim transition time

             (1)  For the operation of an enactment at or after the interim transition time, a reference in an enactment to either of the following is taken to be a reference to the Commonwealth Minister:

                     (a)  a Minister or an executive member (however described, and whether identified by a specific title or not);

                     (b)  the Administrator.

             (2)  Subclause (1) has effect subject to Subdivision B.

             (3)  Subclause (1) does not apply (of its own force or because of section 7 of this Act) to:

                     (e)  the Social Services Act 1980; or

                      (f)  the Social Services Regulations.

             (4)  To avoid doubt, subclause (1) applies in relation to an enactment even if the enactment contains one or more references to the Commonwealth Minister (whether or not any of those references were included in the enactment before, at or after the interim transition time).

Transitional—things done before the interim transition time

             (5)  If, under an enactment as affected by subclause (1), the exercise of a power, or the performance of the function or duty, by the Commonwealth Minister at or after the interim transition time is affected by the doing of anything before that time, the enactment has effect as if anything that was done by or in relation to a Minister or the Administrator before that time had been done by or in relation to the Commonwealth Minister.

Note:          For example, if:

(a)    the enactment provides (apart from subclause (1)) that the Minister may issue a licence if a person applies to the Minister for it; and

(b)    an application was made to the Minister before the interim transition time but no decision was made by that time about issuing a licence;

                   the Commonwealth Minister may issue the licence after that time as if the application had been made to the Commonwealth Minister.

             (6)  This clause does not affect the validity at or after the interim transition time of anything done before that time by a Minister or the Administrator.

Note:          For example, a licence validly issued by a Minister under an enactment before the interim transition time continues to be valid for the purposes of the enactment at and after that time.

Subdivision BExceptions to general rule, and other special rules

6  Modification of prerequisites for Commonwealth Minister to take action under clause 5

             (1)  This clause applies if:

                     (a)  an enactment is expressed (ignoring subclause 5(1)) to make:

                              (i)  a recommendation (however described) about a matter; or

                             (ii)  an approval (however described) of a matter;

                            by an authority established or appointed by or under an enactment, a prerequisite for a Minister or the Administrator to exercise a power or perform a function or duty; and

                     (b)  the Commonwealth Minister has that power, function or duty because of subclause 5(1).

             (2)  The Commonwealth Minister may exercise the power or perform the function or duty without receiving or following the authority’s recommendation about the matter or approval of the matter.

7  Money to be paid or given to the Norfolk Island Regional Council instead of a Minister

                   If an enactment is expressed (ignoring subclause 5(1)) to require or permit an amount to be paid (however described) or given (however described) to a Minister or the Administrator, the enactment has effect as if it required or permitted (as the case requires) the amount to be paid or given to the Norfolk Island Regional Council.

Note:          Some examples of such enactments are ones that (ignoring subclause 5(1)) say that a fee is payable to a Minister or that an application is to be made to a Minister and accompanied by a fee.

8  Commonwealth Minister not required to interact with himself or herself

             (1)  The Commonwealth Minister need not comply with a requirement that:

                     (a)  is imposed on the Commonwealth Minister by an enactment (as affected by subclause 5(1) or otherwise); and

                     (b)  because of that subclause, is a requirement for the Commonwealth Minister to do something in relation to the Commonwealth Minister:

                              (i)  before taking another action; or

                             (ii)  in the process of taking another action; or

                            (iii)  after taking another action.

Note:          Some examples of a requirement to which this clause applies are if an enactment (ignoring subclause 5(1)) says:

(a)    the Administrator may do something on the advice of a Minister; or

(b)    the Administrator must give the Minister or the Commonwealth Minister notice of a decision or action the Administrator has taken.

             (2)  To avoid doubt, if the Commonwealth Minister takes the other action, its validity is not affected merely because the Commonwealth Minister did not or does not comply with the requirement.

Note:          This also applies to action by a delegate of the Commonwealth Minister.

9  Special rules relating to the Legislative Assembly

Requirements relating to the Legislative Assembly that need not be complied with

             (1)  A person or body need not comply with a requirement imposed by an enactment on the person or body to do either of the following:

                     (a)  give (however described) a thing to the Legislative Assembly, a committee of the Legislative Assembly or an officer or member of the Legislative Assembly;

                     (b)  act consistently (however described) with a resolution or recommendation of the Legislative Assembly.

Failure to comply with the requirement does not affect the validity of any act.

Note 1:       Enactments may use various verbs to express requirements to give something to the Legislative Assembly, a committee of the Legislative Assembly, or an officer or member of the Legislative Assembly. Some examples of such verbs are giving, furnishing, laying before, presenting to, tabling, notifying, advising and providing.

Note 2:       Enactments may express in various ways a requirement for a person or body to act consistently with a resolution or recommendation of the Legislative Assembly. For example enactments may refer to a person or body doing something in accordance with a resolution of the Assembly, on the recommendation of the Assembly or on an address from the Assembly.

Acts valid despite absence of action relating to the Legislative Assembly

             (2)  Despite an enactment providing for a thing to be done by or in relation to the Legislative Assembly:

                     (a)  before a power can be exercised, or a function or duty performed, by an authority other than the Assembly; or

                     (b)  in connection with the exercise of a power, or the performance of a function or duty, by such an authority;

the power may be exercised, or the function or duty performed, by the authority even though that thing has not been done, or is not done, by or in relation to the Legislative Assembly.

Division 2Delegation of Commonwealth Minister’s role

10  Delegation by Commonwealth Minister

             (1)  The Commonwealth Minister may, by signed writing, delegate to one or more of the following any or all of the powers, functions and duties the Commonwealth Minister has under one or more enactments because of subclause 5(1), or because of one or more amendments of an enactment made by the Norfolk Island Continued Laws Ordinance 2015:

                     (a)  the Administrator;

                     (b)  a councillor of the Norfolk Island Regional Council;

                     (c)  an employee of the Norfolk Island Regional Council;

                     (d)  a person who holds, or performs the duties of, an office under an enactment;

                     (e)  an employee of a body corporate established by or under an enactment;

                      (f)  an APS employee who holds or performs the duties of an Executive Level 2 position, or an equivalent or higher position, in the Department.

Subdelegation

             (2)  If the Commonwealth Minister allows it in writing, a person to whom a power, function or duty has been delegated under subclause (1) may, by signed writing, further delegate the power, function or duty to a person described in paragraph (1)(a), (b), (c), (d), (e) or (f).

Transitional—conversion of delegations in force before the interim transition time

             (3)  A delegation in force immediately before the interim transition time by a Minister or the Administrator of a power, function or duty under an enactment that continues in force after that time has effect as if it were a delegation made under subclause (1). This does not prevent the Commonwealth Minister from amending or revoking the delegation.

11  Directions to delegates

Compliance with Commonwealth Minister’s directions

             (1)  A person to whom a power, function or duty has been delegated under clause 10 must comply with any written directions of the Commonwealth Minister under this clause.

             (2)  The Commonwealth Minister may give a written direction of a general or specific nature as to the exercise of a power, or performance of a function or duty, that has been delegated under clause 10.

             (3)  The Commonwealth Minister may, by written notice given to a person to whom a power, function or duty has been delegated under clause 10, direct that:

                     (a)  before the person exercises the power or performs the function or duty, the person must notify the Commonwealth Minister of the person’s intention to exercise the power or perform the function or duty; and

                     (b)  the person must do so at least the specified number of days before exercising the power or performing the function or duty.

12  Thing done under delegation taken to have been done by Commonwealth Minister

             (1)  This clause applies if a power, function or duty of the Commonwealth Minister under an enactment has been delegated to a person under clause 10.

Note:          Sections 34AA, 34AB and 34A of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 of the Commonwealth, applying because of section 8A of this Act, contain other rules about delegations.

             (2)  If under the enactment (as affected by subclause 5(1), if relevant) the exercise of the power or the performance of the function or duty depends on the Commonwealth Minister’s opinion, belief or state of mind, the person may exercise the power or perform the function or duty on the person’s opinion, belief or state of mind.

             (3)  If the person exercises the power or performs the function or duty, the Commonwealth Minister is taken for the purposes of the enactment (as affected by subclause 5(1), if relevant) to have exercised the power or performed the function or duty.
