Inquiry Details

Harness Racing NSW (Appeals) Regulation 1999

Established under the Regulation Review Act 1987, this Joint Committee examines all regulations in accordance with various grounds including whether they trespass on private rights and liberties; adversely impact on businesses; are not in accordance with the spirit of the Regulation or within its objectives or there are better alternatives. It reports to the House on those grounds and whether there has been compliance with procedures relating to the making of regulations under the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989. The Committee has the power to recommend to Parliament that regulations be disallowed.


Regulation Review Act 1987, Subordinate Legislation Act 1989

On 23 November 2000 the Regulation Review Committee resolved to inquire into and report to the Parliament on the Harness Racing New South Wales (Appeals) Regulation 1999.


The inquiry was conducted as part of the Committee's function, under section 9 (2) of the Regulation Review Act 1987, of reporting to Parliament from time to time on the staged repeal program. That program requires the periodic review of existing regulations to ensure they continue to effectively meet the objectives of the Act under which they are made.


The purpose of the inquiry was to examine:

  1. the compliance by the Minister with the provisions of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989 in the making of this regulation;
  2. the regulatory impact statement for the regulatory proposal and the consultation conducted in respect of it;
  3. the adequacy of the existing regulatory controls; and
  4. related matters.
