INTERPRETATION OF LEGISLATION ACT 1984 (ILA)

Style changes

Section 54A of the ILA authorises the making of the style changes set out in Schedule 1 to that Act.

References to ILA s. 39B

Sidenotes which cite ILA s. 39B refer to section 39B of the ILA which provides that where an undivided section or clause of a Schedule is amended by the insertion of one or more subsections or subclauses, the original section or clause becomes subsection or subclause (1) and is amended by the insertion of the expression "(1)" at the beginning of the original section or clause.

Interpretation

As from 1 January 2001, amendments to section 36 of the ILA have the following effects:

•     Headings

All headings included in an Act which is passed on or after 1 January 2001 form part of that Act. Any heading inserted in an Act which was passed before 1 January 2001, by an Act passed on or after 1 January 2001, forms part of that Act. This includes headings to Parts, Divisions or Subdivisions in a Schedule; sections; clauses; items; tables; columns; examples; diagrams; notes or forms. See section 36(1A)(2A).

•     Examples, diagrams or notes

All examples, diagrams or notes included in an Act which is passed on or after 1 January 2001 form part of that Act. Any examples, diagrams or notes inserted in an Act which was passed before 1 January 2001, by an Act passed on or after 1 January 2001, form part of that Act. See section 36(3A).

•     Punctuation

All punctuation included in an Act which is passed on or after 1 January 2001 forms part of that Act. Any punctuation inserted in an Act which was passed before 1 January 2001, by an Act passed on or after 1 January 2001, forms part of that Act. See section 36(3B).

•     Provision numbers

All provision numbers included in an Act form part of that Act, whether inserted in the Act before, on or after 1 January 2001. Provision numbers include section numbers, subsection numbers, paragraphs and subparagraphs. See section 36(3C).

•     Location of "legislative items"

A "legislative item" is a penalty, an example or a note. As from 13 October 2004, a legislative item relating to a provision of an Act is taken to be at the foot of that provision even if it is preceded or followed by another legislative item that relates to that provision. For example, if a penalty at the foot of a provision is followed by a note, both of these legislative items will be regarded as being at the foot of that provision. See section 36B.

•     Other material

Any explanatory memorandum, table of provisions, endnotes, index and other material printed after the Endnotes does not form part of an Act.
See section 36(3)(3D)(3E).

        (a)     takes effect on and from the date determined by the Corporation and specified in the notice served under section 41A(5); and

        (b)     operates concurrently with the period for which the person's driver licence or learner permit is suspended by the Corporation under another provision of this Act or under the regulations or another Act or by a court or by operation of this Act, or the period for which the person is disqualified from obtaining a driver licence or learner permit (as the case may be).".

Example

A person who elects to extend the demerit point period has their driver licence suspended for 3 months for a driving offence that does not attract demerit points. The person had incurred 16 demerit points at the time of the demerit point option notice and, under section 40(2) faces an 8 month suspension under this Division. The Corporation may determine that the 8 month suspension under this Division takes effect on the same day as that on which the 3 month suspension takes effect, allowing the 2 suspensions to operate concurrently.".

    (1)     If a driver licence or learner permit suspended under this Division is suspended by the Corporation under another provision of this Act or under the regulations or another Act or by a court or by operation of this Act, the suspension does not affect the period of suspension under this Division.

Example

3 months into a 10 month suspension under this Division, a person has their driver licence suspended by a court for 6 months. At the conclusion of that period of 6 months, the person's driver licence remains suspended for a further one month period (i.e. until the 10 month period of suspension originally imposed under this Division has elapsed).

    (2)     If a driver licence or learner permit suspended under this Division is cancelled by the Corporation under another provision of this Act or under the regulations or another Act or by a court or by operation of this Act, the person remains disqualified from obtaining a driver licence or learner permit until the period for which the person's driver licence or learner permit was suspended under this Division has elapsed.

Example

One month into a 6 month suspension under this Division, a person has their driver licence cancelled by a court and is disqualified from driving and obtaining a driver licence or learner permit for 3 months. At the conclusion of that period of 3 months, the person remains disqualified from obtaining a driver licence or learner permit for a further period of 2 months (i.e. until the 6 month period of suspension originally imposed under this Division has elapsed).".

    (5)     Despite subsection (4), if—

        (a)     a notice is returned undelivered; and

        (b)     the person to whom the notice was sent demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Corporation that the person could not reasonably be expected to have received the notice—
