Constitution of Urabba Parks/Schedule 2/Clause 3
Conditions of inclusion in entrenchments[edit | edit source]
(1) A provision of this Constitution only falls in an entrenchment if the law falls in:
- (a) an entrenchment that does not fall under another entrenchment; or
- (b) if the item falls under another entrenchment – each entrenchment the entrenchment falls in.
(2) A law (other than a provision of this Constitution) or act only falls in an entrenchment if the law or act:
- (a) falls in or under entrenchment 1; or
- (b) deals with matters that under this Part may fall in an entrenchment other than entrenchment 1, or an entrenchment falling under that entrenchment (entrenchable matter).
Relevant notes from the Explanatory Memorandum[edit | edit source]
358. Subclause (1) provides that a provision of this Constitution only falls in an entrenchment if it falls in each entrenchment the entrenchment falls in; this provision is intended to ensure that an entrenchment is only subject to entrenchments that fall within the entrenchment.
359. Subclause (2) provides that laws (other than provisions of this Constitution) and acts only fall in an entrenchment if the law or act falls in entrenchment 1 or is ‘entrenchable matter’ – which is matter that under this Part may fall in an entrenchment other than an entrenchment that is entrenchment 1. This provision limits the ability to have Acts of Parliament entrenched unless they deal with rights important to the rights of members, whether it be in the governance process or rights to charity distributions.
