Introduction of the Bill

Erratum

In schedule 1, page 33, line 3, a formatting error has resulted in the entry for the ‘Accountant in Bankruptcy’ appearing on the same line as the title of the schedule. The Accountant in Bankruptcy is intended to be the first entry in the list of regulators in Schedule 1. This is simply a formatting error and does not affect the meaning of the Bill. It will be corrected when the Bill is reprinted after Stage 2.
