  1. This document consists of the original text of the gazetted Bill annotated to show amendments made to date by both the National Assembly and the Senate. 
  2. The Bill was introduced in the National Assembly, which passed it with amendments before transmitting it to the Senate.  These amendments are shown on pages 2, 3, 11, 14, 18, 41 and 42 below.
  3. On 19th July 2017 the Senate passed further amendments to the Bill.  These further amendments are shown on pages 8, 9 and 21.
  4. The text of the new clause 3 inserted by the Senate on page 9 could not be fitted in on that page.  It is, therefore, set out in full here­—
