Part 11 Section 73
73   Private Acts not to affect rights of the Crown etc
(1)  A Private Act that is passed after the commencement of this Act shall not be construed so as:
(a)  to affect, in a manner prejudicial to the Crown or any other person (other than a person at whose instance or for whose special benefit the Act is passed or some other person claiming by, through or under such a person), the rights of the Crown or any such other person existing before the passing of the Act, or
(b)  to impose liabilities on the Crown or any other person (other than a person at whose instance or for whose special benefit the Act is passed or some other person claiming by, through or under such a person) in respect of any thing done or omitted to be done before the passing of the Act.
(2)  Without limiting the effect of section 30:
(a)  the provisions of section 17 of the Act 16 Victoria No 1 (the Acts Shortening Act of 1852) continue to apply in relation to the rights of the Crown and any other person, being rights that would, but for those provisions, be affected by the passing of Private Acts to which that Act applied before the commencement of this Act, and
(b)  the provisions of section 14 of the Interpretation Act 1897 continue to apply in relation to the rights of the Crown and any other person, being rights that would, but for those provisions, be affected by the passing of Private Acts to which that Act applied before the commencement of this Act,
notwithstanding the repeal of those Acts by this Act.
