This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order brings into force section 6 of the Department of Justice (Restructuring) Act 1995 on 1 December 2004. Section 6 abolishes the former Department of Justice and consequentially amends the State Sector Act 1988 and the Ombudsmen Act 1975. The commencement of section 6 was delayed to ensure that the former department's residual liabilities were discharged before its abolition. The former Department of Justice is therefore abolished.
