6 New section 66F provides that where a complaint is declined under section 66E the complainant may not make another complaint about the same conduct, unless permitted by the Commissioner. This prevents a complaint being made about the same conduct which would likely face the same problem that led to the complaint being declined by the Commissioner under section 66E. Clause 14. Section 67 amended Clause 14 amends the heading and body of section 67 by omitting the word reject and replacing that word with decline. The use of the word decline reduces perceived severity by complainants compared to the word reject. Clause 15. Section 68 amended Clause 15 amends the heading and body of section 68 by omitting the word reject and replacing with the word decline. The use of the word decline reduces perceived severity by complainants compared to the word reject. Clause 16. Sections 69 and 70 repealed Clause 16 repeals section 69 which is being replaced by proposed new section 66D. Clause 16 also repeals section 70 which is being replaced by proposed new section 66C. Clause 17. Section 71 amended Section 71 of the Anti-Discrimination Act provides for the withdrawal of a complaint by a complainant. Clause 17 of this Bill amends section 71(3) by omitting the reference to investigating and substituting evaluating, followed by omitting the reference to Division 2 and substituting Division 4. This reflects the amendment in clause 18, which repeals Division 2 of the Anti-Discrimination Act relating to investigations. Investigations are replaced with a new process of evaluation in an amendment to Division 4.
