Project No. 89
The reference arose out of recognition of the need for reform following similar developments in other Australian jurisdictions, Britain and Canada. At the time of the reference the Act was virtually identical to the English Sale of Goods Act 1893 (UK) which was copied in virtually all common law jurisdictions in the last years of the 19th century.
The Sale of Goods Act 1895 (WA) was referred to the Commission for general review in 1989
Confirmation of receipt of the final report was acknowledged by the Attorney General during Parliamentary proceedings on 8 September 1998. There has been no action to implement the Commission’s recommendations.
