It’s called the Criminal Procedure Amendment (Consequential and Transitional Provisions) Bill 2009. The Explanatory Memorandum for it can be found here.
At 256 pages, the proposed bill is only marginally smaller than the Criminal Procedure Bill itself (and larger than our new Evidence Act). Most of the changes are administrative in nature, to promote consistency in approach and terminology across a variety of Acts.
Of note is Clause 50, which will reproduce the provisions currently found in ss 37A – E and Division 3AA (ss 41A – E) of the Evidence Act 1958. The Bill will preserve existing special rules relating to the giving of evidence in sexual offence and family violence proceedings.
(Section 8 of the Evidence Act 2008 provides that it doesn’t affect the operation of any other Act. Here’s an example of where parliament clearly doesn’t want our Evidence Act to be uniform with other states).
I’m still leafing through it. If you come across something that you think will change things dramatically, let us know.
