Provisions of the Migration
Amendment (Judicial Review) Bill 2004
On 30 March 2004, the Senate
referred the provisions of the Migration Amendment (Judicial Review) Bill
2004 to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Legislation Committee for
inquiry and report by 15 June 2004.
The Bill amends the
Migration Act 1958 by defining a privative clause decision for purposes
other than the grounds of judicial review and thus restores key procedural
elements of the migration judicial review scheme.
