Can anyone help me find this. I want to find a copy of the memorandum of explanation or amendment bill which went before the Parliament of the Commonwealth to cause it to amend the 'Proceeds of Crime Act 2002' so as to insert ss (ca) to sect 24(1). Re the exclusion of legal fees. This new section first appeared in the Act per No: 86 of 2006 which commenced on 6 Dec 2006. It was not in the immediate prior version of the Act No: 136 of 2005 - which was superseded on 5/6 Dec 2006 by (#86). I need to understand on what basis Parliament considered the amendment to exclude legal fees from restrained assets. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Charles

Thank you for that. I have tried. Also searched all Gazettes for 2006. Never had this trouble finding things before. Charles
