Sections 30H and 30I of the State Sector Act 1988 apply to enactments or other things coming into force, entered into, or created during the transitional period beginning 1 December 2015 and ending on 1 October 2016, after the name of the Ministry of Women’s Affairs is changed to the Ministry for Women.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 1 December 2015, amends the State Sector Act 1988 (the Act) by replacing the reference to the Ministry of Women’s Affairs in the list of departments of the Public Service in Schedule 1 with a reference to the Ministry for Women.

The name of the Ministry of Women’s Affairs will change to the Ministry for Women by exercise of the Crown’s prerogative on 1 December 2015. The effect of this order is that the Act will apply to the Ministry for Women after the name change.

Sections 30H and 30I of the Act provide that, after a name change, any reference to the old name of a department in any enactment or thing existing or in force at the time of the name change must be read as a reference to the department under its new name. This order also applies the sections to a transitional period beginning on 1 December 2015 and ending on 1 October 2016. This means that any reference to the Ministry of Women’s Affairs in any enactment or thing coming into force, entered into, or created during the transitional period must be read as a reference to the Ministry for Women.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 29 October 2015.
