In Marks v GIO Australia Holdings Ltd (1998) 196 CLR 494, the Violent Court referred to the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) as ‘a important interest of mitigating and protective synod which affords result to matters of violent generally-known policy’, adding that, ‘it is to be construed so as to afford the fullest holp which the unspotted significance of its talk procure allow’.
Are these dicta identical ry to the Australian Consumer Law (Cth) (‘ACL’)?
In answering this interrogation, you should frame intimation, amongst other things, to each of the following:
a) Parliament’s reasons for enacting the ACL;
b) The trained application of the ACL; and
c) Any reforms that bear been, or should be, made to the ACL.
