Public Notaries Act 1997 – Section 19

This section has been repealed from the Public Notaries Act 1997 (NSW) by the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (No 2) 1999 (NSW).

Originally, the section amended the Administrative Decisions Tribunal Act 1997 (NSW) in accordance with the provisions of Schedule 2 of the Public Notaries Act 1997 as it was originally made. The provisions of Schedule 2 (specifically item 2 of the Schedule) inserted provisions into the Administrative Decisions Tribunal Act which go to the constitution of the Tribunal in the event that a complaint was to be made there against a Notary Public.

Item 2 of the Schedule indicated the insertion of a new clause 4A into Schedule 2 of the Administrative Decisions Tribunal Act. That provision remains in that Act. That section refers to the special requirements for the constitution of the Tribunal for certain allocated functions. It reads as follows:

Public Notaries Act 1997 (Original decisions)

(1)  For the purposes of the application of Chapter 4 of the Legal Profession Act 2004 under section 14 of the Act, the Tribunal is to be constituted as follows:

(a)  in the case of a complaint against a public notary who is a barrister—by 1 judicial member, 1 barrister member and 1 lay member,

(b)  in the case of a complaint against a public notary who is a solicitor—by 1 judicial member, 1 solicitor member and 1 lay member.

(2)  In this clause, the Act means the Public Notaries Act 1997.
