(d) where.land is, and but for the conpul-
sory acquisition would continue to be, devoted
to a purpose of such a nature that there is no
general demand or market for land for that
purpose, the compensation may, if the Board is
satisfied that reinstatement in some other place
is bona fide intended, be assessed on the basis
of the reasonable cost of equivalent reinstate-
ment;

necessity which has led to the
acquisition;

nature of deprivation of or inter-
ference with an easement, servitude
or legal right, which, after the time
of awarding compensation, is likely
to be caused by or in consequence

the claim put forward is grossly excessive or that
he has been a party to some deceit or fraud in
respect of his claim.

(1) of this section, where an unconditional offer
in writing of any amount as compensation has
beeti made to any claimant by on or behalf of the

authorised officer so far as the costs of the autho-
rised officer were incurred after the offer was
made; and, where the claimant has failed to put
forward a proper claim in sufficient time to enable
the authorised officer to make a proper offer, the
foregoing provisions of this section shall apply as
if an unconditional offer had been made by or on
behalf of the authorised officer at the time when,
in the opinion of the Board, a proper claim should
have been put forward and the claimant has been
awarded a sum not exceeding the amount of such
offer.

(3) Subject to the provisions of subsection
(1) of this section, where a claimant has made an
unconditional offer in writing to accept any
amount as compensation and has put forward a

authorized officer to make a proper offer, and the
sum awarded is equal to or exceeds that amount,
the Chairman shall, unless for special reasons he
thinks it proper not to do so, order the authorised
officertobear his own costs and to pay the costs
of the claimant so far as the costs of the claim-

this section, the costs shall be in the discretion of

and in what manner those costs or any part thereof
shall be paid, and he may in any case direct such

such lease, except as to the amount of rent to be
paid, shall remain in force with regard to the residue

such case the lessee shall only be liable to pay the
rent due at the date of the occurrence of the circum-

OBJECTS AND REASONS.


This Colony's legislation authorising the acquisition of land
for public purposes was enacted by the General Legislature of
the Colony of the Leeward Islands prior to the defederation of
that Colony and the said legislation was, upon defederation,
adapted for use in the Colony of Antigua by the Adaptation of
Laws Regulations, 1956.

2. Subsequent to defederation, grave doubts have arisen
as to the competency of the General Legislature of the Colony
of the Leeward Islands to have enacted legislation authorising
the acquisition of land for public purposes, whereas, there is no
doubt that the Legislature of the Colony of Antigua is fully
competent so to do.

3. The object, therefore, of this Bill is to remove such
doubts by seeking to repeal the said legislation and to validate
all rights, powers, acts and duties which were exercised and
undertaken thereunder.

4. The Bill is based upon the Land Acquisition Ordi-
nance, 1957, of the Virgin Islands and its provisions are almost
the same as those of the Land Acquisition Act, 1944.
