The British Antarctic Territory (BAT) is undertaking a review of its legislation in order to update and modernise it.
The first proposed change relates to the Official Gazette which records all BAT legislation, Orders and official appointments. We are proposing to make the Gazette digital via our website to make it more readily available.
The other proposed changes are to rename the position of Principal Legal Adviser to Attorney General to bring BAT in line with other Overseas Territories and a new Revision of Law Ordinance to set out clearly the process we are embarking on to revise the BAT legislation and how laws will be revised and repealed.
We are now undertaking a two month consultation period for these proposed changes. If you have any comments on the attached documents please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of January 2016.
As the review process continues, further consultation will be added to the BAT website.
