Disallowable Instruments

Disallowance refers to the process, provided for in the Interpretation Act 1987, by which either House of Parliament may, by resolution, disallow a statutory instrument with the effect that the instrument is treated as if it has been repealed and any amendments made by it undone. An instrument may be disallowed if notice of the disallowance resolution is given within 15 sitting days after notice of the rule was tabled in the House.
