Memorandum extracts from: Rail Safety National Law Bill 2014

Date 27 Feb 2014
Bill name Rail Safety National Law Bill 2014
Extracts from memorandum
The application of the RSNL as a law of the Territory may be seen as engaging a number of rights in the Human Rights Act 2004. These rights are discussed below in relation to whether any limits on rights which they may create can be considered reasonable, consistent with section 28 of the Human Rights Act 2004 (Human rights may be limited). That section provides that human rights may be subject only to reasonable limits set by laws that can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society, and sets out relevant factors which must be considered in deciding whether a limit is reasonable.
