Future act provisions:

The Extract notes that there are no statements within the ILUA of the kind which are mentioned in ss 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under these sections are not triggered.

The area covered by this ILUA is within the area of the Kuruma Marthudunera Part A and Part B native title determinations.
