Relevant notes from the Explanatory Memorandum[edit | edit source]
103. Subsection (1) provides that members of Houses of the Parliament must be appointed directors by virtue of a representative place (category B). Subsection (2) clarifies the position of alternate members, who are also to be appointed alternate directors by virtue of their alternate membership (alternate legislative directors).
104. It is important that members of Houses are appointed directors because of their principal role in the system of government; and as the powers of the management of a company are taken to be exercised by the directors, the lawmakers, as the principal delegators of such power, must be appointed directors in order for the system of government to translate to the lawful exercise of the overarching legislative power of Urabba Parks.
