This is a single section from Chapter 2. Read the full chapter here.
Are any conflicts or interactions between new legislation and existing legislation addressed?
Any conflict or interactions between new and existing legislation should be explicitly addressed in the new legislation.
Where there is an unavoidable or intentional conflict between new legislation and existing legislation, or where there is any interaction between two or more provisions in different legislation, the new legislation should make clear which provision shall prevail or how it is intended that the two provisions should operate together.
