National Competition Policy Review of the Bills of Exchange Act 1909

Date:

Monday, 11 August 2003

Content ID:

688

Abstract:

The Bills of Exchange Act is referred to an Inter-Departmental Working Group (the Working Group) for evaluation and report. The Working Group, which is comprised of officers from the Treasury, the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Attorney-General’s Department, is to focus on those parts of the legislation which restrict competition, or which impose costs or confer benefits on business. However, the Working Group may give consideration to a possible broadening of the scope of the Act to encompass financial rights and obligations, whether in the form of a physical instrument or otherwise, which are negotiable in nature, but which are not currently encompassed by the Act.
