Clause 21(2) states that

“the provision that may be made by regulations under subsection (1) includes provision amending an Act (including an Act passed in the same session as this).”

Can the Minister tell the Committee why that is? What Act being passed in this Session could possibly need to be amended as a consequence? Is there another Bill that has provisions about such things? Why is that part in parentheses included?
