(1) The Governor-General may, by Proclamation, declare that all the child welfare law provisions of this Part extend to a specified State.
(2) Despite anything in section 69ZE, if no declaration under subsection (1) is in force in relation to a particular State, this Part, as it extends to that State because of section 69ZE, has effect as if:
(a) subsection 66F(2) were omitted; and
(b) subsections 69ZE(1) and (2) were amended by omitting "and section 69ZF"; and
(c) section 69ZF were omitted; and
(d) paragraph 69ZK(1)(b) were omitted; and
(e) subsection 69ZK(2) were amended by adding at the end the following word and paragraphs:
"; or (d) the jurisdiction of a court under a child welfare law to make an order in relation to the maintenance of the child; or
(e) an order of the kind referred to in paragraph (d).".
(3) A Proclamation that was in force in relation to a State under subsection 60E(6) of this Act as in force before the commencement of this section has effect, after that commencement, as if it were a Proclamation under subsection (1) of this section.
Note: This section preserves the effect of subsections 60E(6) and (7) of this Act as in force before the commencement of this section. Under those subsections, the amendments of this Act made by the Law and Justice Legislation Amendment Act 1992 did not extend to a State unless a Proclamation was in force in relation to the State.
