Snippet Contents:

Regarding legislative development generally, of course we need a review procedure. I am not sure this Bill is the place to bring that in. We have a series of difficulties with our legislation, which make much of it generally impenetrable to people who need to access it and who do not have access to lawyers. It is even difficult for lawyers to read our legislation because of our dependence on textual and non-textual amendments and the way that we stick things into miscellaneous provisions Bills which amend completely different Acts. It is very hard for anybody to know what the law is on a given subject at any time.
The Law Reform Commission has put great effort into revised and annotated Acts and that project has gone some way in this regard. We have also had the statute law revision project, which has got rid of many Acts which were no longer relevant. A major textual body of work remains to be done on how we draft legislation, present it and make it accessible to people. The review of legislation needs to be part of that.
