Constitution of Western Australia Bill 1997

Bill No. 61
Long Title The Bill seeks to overcome the worst deficiencies of the Constitution of Western Australia. It consolidates the Constitution Act 1889 and the Constitution Acts Amendment Act 1899 into one Act. It re-orders the sections of these Acts so that they are arranged in five parts - Preliminary, the Parliament, the Executive Government, the Judiciary and Local Government - and further arranged by division. Obsolete sections of the 1889 and 1899 Acts are discharged.
