If you missed it, the Northern Territory passed the Sex Industry Bill 2019 in Parliament last month!
So when will this legislation commence as the Sex Industry Act 2019?
Well this legislation will commence on the day fixed by the Administrator by Gazette notice.
In other words, it needs final signed off by a special someone in the NT parliament – that someone is Vicki O’Halloran who is an official appointed by the Governor-General of Australia to represent the government of the Commonwealth in the Northern Territory.
Therefore the legislation decriminalising in the Northern Territory has not officially commenced (yet). We expect this to happen very soon.
We will keep you posted….
