Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 December 1992, determine—

(a)

that any grant payable from the Rural Fire Fighting Fund under section 46B(1)(a) of the Fire Service Act 1975 shall, subject to sections 46E and 46F of that Act, be for the purpose of meeting 95% of each assessed claim made by a Fire Authority on that Fund; and

(b)

that the amount to be deducted, under section 46E(1) of the Fire Service Act 1975, from the amount of each grant payable from the Rural Fire Fighting Fund under section 46B(1)(a) of that Act shall be $1,000 in respect of each assessed claim.

The only change is in the amount to be deducted, under section 46E(1) of the Fire Service Act 1975, from the amount of each grant payable from the Rural Fire Fighting Fund under section 46B(1)(a) of that Act. The amount to be deducted in respect of each assessed claim is reduced from $5,000 to $1,000.

The new deduction of $1,000 will apply in respect of each assessed claim made in respect of a fire originating on or after 1 December 1992. The former deduction of $5,000 will continue to apply in respect of each assessed claim made in respect of a fire originating before 1 December 1992.
