Relevant notes from the explanatory memorandum

60.  This section, based on the corresponding section in the Australian Constitution, provides the Manager-General may set the sessions of the Parliament and prorogue the Parliament.

61.  Under paragraph (1)(c), the Manager-General may, subject to law, dissolve the House of Ordinaries.  The words ‘subject to law’, which do not appear in the corresponding section in the Australian Constitution, imply that the Parliament may provide for fixed terms. See notes 123 and 124 regarding dissolution of the House.

62.  Subsection (2) provides the Parliament not later than thirty days after the day appointed for the return of the writs of a general election.
