              EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM


                               Clause Notes
Clause 1   sets out that the purpose of the Bill is to revise the statute law of
           Victoria by repealing spent Acts.

Clause 2   provides for the commencement of the Bill, which is to be the
           day after the day on which the Act receives the Royal Assent.

Clause 3   provides for the Acts listed in the Schedule to be repealed.

Clause 4   provides for the repeal of Act 5 Vict No. 14 of New South Wales
           (1841 Bank of Australasia) to the extent that it applies to
           Victoria. The Law Reform Commission of Victoria in Report
           No. 16: Obsolete Legislation (Second Report), February 1989
           recommended the repeal of this Act. As noted in the
           Commission's report, the purpose of this New South Wales Act
           was to provide that a notarised copy of an exemplification of the
           Royal Charter of the Bank of Australasia should be received as
           evidence of the contents of the charter in the courts of New South
           Wales. The Act continued in force in Victoria after separation of
           the colony from New South Wales on 1 July 1851. The ANZ
           Group confirmed to the Law Reform Commission that the Act is
           no longer needed. The repeal of this Act was also recommended
           by the Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations Committee in its second
           report on Redundant and Unclear Legislation (November 1995).
           This Act is obsolete and can be repealed.

Clause 5   provides for the automatic repeal of this Act on the first
           anniversary of the day on which it receives the Royal Assent.
           Once the repeals made by this Act have taken effect, this Act will
           be spent. This automatic repeal will save having to repeal the Act
           in a future Statute Law Revision Bill.

            1.1   Act No. 90 (1959 Australian Trust Company)
                  The Law Reform Commission of Victoria recommended
                  the repeal of this Act in its Report No. 16: Obsolete
                  Legislation (Second Report), February 1989. As noted in
                  the Commission's report, the main purpose of this Act was
                  to give further powers to the Australian Trust Company
                  and to remove doubts on the validity of certain deeds.
                  The Commission reported that the records of the Corporate
                  Affairs Office disclosed that the company was voluntarily
                  wound up on 5 May 1932. The repeal of this Act was also
                  recommended by the Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations
                  Committee in its second report on Redundant and Unclear
                  Legislation (November 1995). This Act is obsolete and can

                  the laws relating to letters patent and other matters to the
                  Federal Council of Australia. Further matters were referred
                  by the 1892 and 1896 Acts. The Commission reported that
                  these Acts became redundant on Federation. The repeal of
                  these Acts was also recommended by the Scrutiny of Acts
                  and Regulations Committee in its second report Redundant

      Company Limited Act 1897 in it first report. That 1897

      1889 Act was also recommended by the Scrutiny of Acts

      The Commission noted that the company had been merged
      in the Elders IXL Limited group. Elders IXL Limited
      advised the Commission that the Act was no longer needed.
