Aborigines Act and Torres Strait Islanders Act Amendment Act 1975 (1975 - 1990)

Amending Act

This act has the full title "An Act to amend the Aborigines Act 1971-1974, the Torres Strait Islanders Act 1971-1974 and The Aboriginal Relics Preservation Act of 1967 each in certain particulars"(Act no.30/1975). This amendment act omits and replaces the words Island Affairs with Islanders Advancement and replaces the Departmental name Conservation, Marine and Aboriginal Affairs with Aboriginal and Islanders Advancement and Fisheries both the Aborigines Act 1971 (59/1971) and the Torres Strait Islanders Act 1971 (60/1971).
This act was repealed by the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1990 (No.88) on 6 December 1990. This act was repealed after the acts it amends where replaced, it is therefore assumed that it applied to the subsequent legislation until 1995.
