The dictionary at the end of this Act is part of this Act.
Note 1 The dictionary at the end of this Act defines certain terms used in this Act, and includes references ("signpost definitions") to other terms defined elsewhere in this Act or in other legislation.
For example, the signpost definition ‘ trustee company —see the Trustee Companies Act 1947
, dictionary.' means that the term ‘trustee company' is defined in that dictionary and the definition applies to this Act.

, s 155 and s 156 (1)).
