Relevant note from the Explanatory Memorandum[edit | edit source]

172. This section provides for the Enactorial Assent (being assent in the Enactor’s name) by the Manager‑General a proposed law (Bill) that has passed each House of the Parliament. Like the corresponding section in the Australian Constitution, this section provides that the Manager‑General may exercise discretion when assenting to a Bill, it is intended that the Manager‑General grant assent, unless the Advocate‑General has advised the Manager‑General to recommend technical amendments (relating to spelling, grammar and enforceability). Also, it should be noted that the definition of Manager‑General includes the Enactor, so a Bill presented to the Enactor (or any other Honorary Manager) is, unless referred to the Enactor in Right of an entity having foundation in Urabba Parks (see note 174), is taken to be assented to by the Manager‑General under this section.
