Relevant notes from the explanatory memorandum

268. This section provides the Parliament may make a selective reduction of membership (a purchase of membership by Urabba Parks).  Any consideration for the selective reduction must be in the form of a charity distribution, repayment of service membership or non-compete agreement with a charity or government entity.  The consideration must be approved by the Parliament, and in the case of the funds of an entity funding the selective reduction, the entity.  A member or group of members may wish to have their membership purchased for a number of reasons, including the transfer of an association to another company.  The intention of this section is to clarify the not-for-profit nature of membership interests, by ensuring that proceeds of the purchase are applied towards the charitable purposes of Urabba Parks.
