Tasmania - Legislation

The Training Schools Amendment Act 1880 (1880 - 1896)

Amending Act

The Training Schools Amendment Act 1880 also known by its full title "An Act to amend 'The Training Schools Act 1880'"(Act no.44 Vict. No.5) changed the maximum age of children detained in a Training School from 16 to 18. The amendment also made some structural changes to the original legislation by splitting one paragraph up into multiple paragraphs, however it does not appear to have substantially changed the meaning of the text.
