Constitution Act 1902 No 32
5A Disagreement between the two Houses—appropriation
for annual services
(1) If the Legislative Assembly passes any Bill appropriating revenue
or moneys for the ordinary annual services of the Government and the
Legislative Council rejects or fails to pass it or returns the Bill to the
Legislative Assembly with a message suggesting any amendment to which the
Legislative Assembly does not agree, the Legislative Assembly may direct that
the Bill with or without any amendment suggested by the Legislative Council,
be presented to the Governor for the signification of His Majesty’s
pleasure thereon, and shall become an Act of the Legislature upon the Royal
Assent being signified thereto, notwithstanding that the Legislative Council
has not consented to the Bill.
(2) The Legislative Council shall be taken to have failed to pass any
such Bill, if the Bill is not returned to the Legislative Assembly within one
month after its transmission to the Legislative Council and the Session
continues during such period.
(3) If a Bill which appropriates revenue or moneys for the ordinary
annual services of the Government becomes an Act under the provisions of this
section, any provision in such Act dealing with any matter other than such
appropriation shall be of no effect.
