Minister's second reading speech—

Legislative Assembly: 6 October 2005

Legislative Council: 28 March 2006

The long title for the Bill for this Act was "to provide for safe rail operations in Victoria, to amend the Transport Act 1983, the Public Transport Competition Act 1995, the Rail Corporations Act 1996, the Electricity Industry Act 2000, the Gas Industry Act 2001, the Magistrates' Court Act 1989, the Road Management Act 2004, the Water Act 1989, the Water Industry Act 1994 and for other purposes."

The Rail Safety Act 2006 was assented to on 4 April 2006 and came into operation as follows:
Section 156(1) on 1 January 2006: section 2(3); sections 129 and 156(2) on 5 April 2006: section 2(2); section 147 on 25 July 2006; rest of Act (except sections 122 and 123) on 1 August 2006: Special Gazette (No. 181) 25 July 2006 page 1; section 122 on 1 January 2007: section 2(4); section 123 on 30 June 2008: section 2(5).

The title of this Act was changed from the Rail Safety Act 2006 to the Rail Safety (Local Operations) Act 2006 by section 103 of the Transport Legislation Amendment (Rail Safety Local Operations and Other Matters) Act 2013, No. 23/2013.

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).
