Parliamentary Service Act 2000

34 Delegation of powers by Speaker


The Speaker may delegate to a specified person any function, duty, or power (other than this power of delegation) that the Speaker has under this Act.


A delegation must be in writing and signed by the Speaker.


A delegate must exercise or perform functions, duties, or powers—


in accordance with any condition attaching to the delegation and any general or special direction given by the Speaker; but


otherwise in the same manner and with the same effect as if they had been conferred or imposed on the delegate directly by this Act.


Every person purporting to act under a delegation is, in the absence of proof to the contrary, to be regarded as acting in accordance with the terms of the delegation.
