Relevant notes from the explanatory memorandum
312. This section entrenches the charitable nature of Urabba Parks, by limiting the ability to make certain constitutional changes and the effect of those changes if actually made. Subsection (1) provides for the limitation of the alteration to the Constitution in certain cases including:
- (A) resulting in Urabba Parks ceasing to be a charity does not permit the application of existing income or property to non-charitable objects – this provision is based on section 197 of the Charities Act 2011 of the Parliament of the United Kingdom; and
- (B) limiting indemnity provided to a person does not affect any indemnity in relation to acts and omissions before the alteration, except in relation to a person who has voluntarily agreed to such limitation.
313. Subsection (2) limits the application of requirements other than the approval of the members of Urabba Parks. This is to assert the ownership of Urabba Parks by its members, by ensuring that those extra requirements (such as a higher than absolute majority in a House of Parliament or certificate of the Visitatorial Commission) cannot prevent the members of Urabba Parks from approving an alteration to this Constitution, entrenched provisions and entrenched acts.
314. Subsection (3) provides the member immediately holding foundation agrees that any approval given to an alteration of this Constitution or other law, or the approval of any act, that limits the powers of an entity having foundation shall be of no effect unless the entity has enacted for the alteration or approval, or given consent for enactment of the same.
