Corporations (Ancillary Provisions) Bill 2001

Bill No. 15
Long Title This Bill contains normal transitional provisions relating to State law being superseded by a Commonwealth law. The Bill has three major effects: First, if an existing Western Australian Act expressly has an exclusionary effect by virtue of which the current State Corporations Law does not apply to it in particular circumstances, the proposed Commonwealth Corporations Act 2001 will preserve that position; Secondly, the Bill translates references in Western Australian legislation to the old State Corporations Law regime that are now to be read as references to the new proposed Commonwealth corporations legislation; The third effect of the Bill is that where a Western Australian law currently applies provisions of the State Corporations Law, those provisions will continue to apply as State law.
