To omit lines 30 to 33 on page 65.
Clause 2 (the commencement clause) is replaced by a new clause—
postponing the commencement of the Bill until 1 October 2008; and
providing for proposed new clause 120(1A), which amends a provision of the Burial and Cremation Act 1964 that is to be inserted into that Act on the commencement of the Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Relationships Amendment Act 2008, to come into force on the commencement of that Act.
The amendment to clause 39 corrects an erroneous cross-reference.
A new clause 53A is inserted, making clear that all offences against the Bill are triable summarily.
The amendment to clause 64 makes clear that a person seconded to the Police from another organisation would be
“assigned” by the Commissioner to a position in the Police rather than
“seconded” to that position.
The amendment to clause 94 (which at present provides that the evidence of identity and authority to be provided to Police employees must be
“in the prescribed form”) has the effect that the evidence can be in any form the Commissioner thinks appropriate, but must state certain prescribed information and bear certain prescribed things.
The amendment to clause 100 aligns the power to prescribe matters relating to the evidence of identity and authority to be provided to Police employees under clause 94 with the amendment to be made to that clause.
The amendment to clause 120 inserts a new subclause (1A), substituting a reference to
“constable” for a reference to
“member of the police” in a provision of the Burial and Cremation Act 1964 that is to be inserted into that Act on the commencement of the Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Relationships Amendment Act 2008.
Minor textual adjustments are made to clause 106C and Schedule 4.
The amendment to Schedule 5 omits from that schedule amendments to certain provisions of the Government Superannuation Fund (Ceasing Contributions) Regulations 1995 that no longer have to be made, because those provisions apply to actions that could be taken only until 31 July 2008.
