Fixing of new non-parole period in respect of multiple sentences

    (1)     If—

        (a)     a court has sentenced an offender to be imprisoned in respect of an offence and has fixed a non-parole period in respect of the sentence; and

        (b)     before the end of that non-parole period the offender is sentenced by a court to a further term of imprisonment in respect of which it proposes to fix a non-parole period

the court must fix a new single non-parole period in respect of all the sentences the offender is to serve or complete.

    (2)     The new single non-parole period fixed at the time of the imposition of the further sentence—

        (a)     supersedes any previous non-parole period that the offender is to serve or complete; and

        (b)     must not be such as to render the offender eligible to be released on parole earlier than would have been the case if the further sentence had not been imposed.
