Your Request
Under Freedom of Information, I request a full original copy of the following document:

Our Response

You can find a full copy of the original version (as enacted) of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 here:
http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Vict/63-64/12/enacted

Part of the remit of the Legislation Services Team of The National Archives is to apply any amendments applicable to a particular Act made by other items of legislation.  You can find the amended version of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 here:
http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Vict/63-64/12/contents

Section 21 of the FOIA states that public authorities are not obliged to provide information if it is already reasonably accessible by other means. This means that, as the information you have requested is already available elsewhere we do not need to provide it again.

Further guidance regarding the section 21 exemption can be found here:
