Amendment of section 16 (Review of schemes) Section 16 of the Principal Act provides for the review of schemes. Clause 12 amends section 16(3) so as to enable an interstate scheme to be reviewed for the purpose of determining whether its operation should be terminated in relation to Northern Territory. Clause 13. Amendment of section 17 (Amendment and revocation of schemes) Section 17 of the Principal Act provides for the amendment and revocation of schemes. Clause 13 amends section 17(5) so as to extend sections 7 to 15 (with the necessary changes) to the amendment of a scheme by an instrument under section 17. Clause 13 also inserts a new section 17(6) extending sections 7 to 14, other than section 12(2), to the revocation of a scheme by an instrument under section 17. Clause 13 also inserts a new section 17(7) which excludes interstate schemes from the operation of section 17. Clause 14. New sections 17A and 17B Clause 14 inserts new sections 17A and 17B into the Principal Act. Proposed section 17A requires the Minister to notify his or her interstate counterparts if he or she revokes a scheme, and to Gazette notice of any revocation of an interstate scheme of which he or she receives notice. Proposed section 17B provides for the termination of the operation of interstate schemes in relation to the Northern Territory. Its procedures parallel the procedures established by section 17 for the amendment and revocation of schemes. Clause 15. Amendment of section 33 (Duration of scheme) Section 33 of the Principal Act provides for the duration of schemes. Clause 15 substitutes section 33(1) and adds a new section 33(1 A) to clarify the period for which a scheme prepared in the Northern Territory remains in force. Clause 15 also adds a new section 33(1 B) specifying the period for which an interstate scheme remains in force. Clause 15 also adds a new section 33(5) dealing with the period a scheme is to remain in force where that period has been determined by the Council under subsection (1) before the commencement of the Amendment Act.
