1959-No. 60-Grenada
Before CYRIL GEORGE XAVIER HENRIQUES,
C.J.
1959-12th February
Mr. GEORGE E. D. CLYNE for Appellant
The Respondent in person.
Mr. E. A. HEYLIGER, Acting Attorney-General
as amnicus curiae
19th May, 1960.

JUDGMENT

The appellant brought an action in the Magis-
trate's Court, Southern District against the respon-
dent for the recovery of premises situate at Halifax
Street in the town of St. George's of which the
rental was $40 uer month.
At the trial the defendant admitted :-
(1) the relationship of landlord and tenant
between the plaintiff and himself;
(2) that the rental was either $40 per month
or $27 per month ;
(3) that he was now twenty-two months in
arrears under rent;
(4) that he had been given notice to quit;
(5) that he had failed to give up possession.
It was further revealed in the course of the
trial that the premises were premises to which
the Rent Restriction Ordinance (No. 14 of
1949) applied. Upon these facts counsel for the
appellant who represented the appellant in the
Magistrate's Court applied for judgment and cited
in support of his application, paragraph (a) of
subsection 1 of section 13 and section 17 of
the Rent Restriction Ordinance, 1949 (No. 14 of
1949). The learned Magistrate reserved his deci-
sion and on the 26th March, 1959, delivered
a written judgment dismissing the claim. In
paragraphs 6 and 7 of his judgment, the Magistrate


stated: "Re S. 17 of Rent Restriction Ordinance,
Cited, I consider it has no application to permit the
claim to be entertained.
I conclude that the legislation under which the
said claim may be made is The Small Tenements
(Recovery of Possession) Act and that the claim is
one beyond the jurisdiction of the Magistrate's
Court and must be dismissed."
Learned counsel for the appellant has submitted
in this Court that the effect of section 17 of the
Rent Restriction Ordinance, 1949 (No. 14 of 1949)
was to confer on the Magistrate's Court a jurisdic-
tion, which previously did not exist, and that once
the premises were shown to be premises to which
the Rent Restriction Ordinance applied, and that
the provisions of that Ordinance had been com-
plied with, then appellant was entitled to judgment.
The respondent was not represented by counsel,
but the learned Acting Attorney-General who was
invited to appear as amnicus curice supported the
submissions of learned counsel for the appellant.
In my view, the learned Magistrate misconceived
the true position and accordingly came to a wrong
conclusion. Section 17 of the Rent Restriction
Ordinance, 1949, is to the following effect :
"17. The jurisdiction of Magistrates under
the Magistrate Ordinance, 1936, shall, during
the continuance of this Ordinance, extend to
all premises to which this Ordinance for the
time being applies irrespective of the nature of
the tenancy or the length of the term or the
amount of the rent",
In order to arrive at what is the jurisdiction of a
Magistrate in matters of this kind under the
Magistrates Ordinance, 1936, it is necessary to
consider section 30 of that Ordinance, as repealed
and replaced by the Magistrates (Amendment)
Ordinance, 1947. One of the effects of that section
is that all actions in all matters to which jurisdic-
tion is by any law expressly given to Magistrates
or Justices of the Peace may be commenced in the
Magistrates Court, and such actions shall be heard
and determined in a summary manner.
The Small Tenements Recovery Act, Cap. 214 of
the Revised Edition conferred jurisdiction on the
Magistrate in relation to matters specified in that
Ordinance, and the effect therefore of section 17 of
the Rent Restriction Ordinance, is to extend that
jurisdiction in respect of premises within the
purview of that Ordinance, "irrespective of the
nature of the tenancy or length of the term or the
amount of the rent". Section 17 of the local Rent
Restriction Ordinance, 1949, was intended, in my
view, to confer on the Magistrate's Court, a similar
type of jurisdiction which was conferred on the
County Court in England by section 17 (2) of the
Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restric-
tions) Act, 1920. By that section, the county
court was vested with the jurisdiction to deal with
any claim or other proceedings arising out of the
Acts, notwithstanding that by reason of the
amount of the claim or otherwise, the case would
not be under the ordinary jurisdiction of the county
court.
For the above reasons, I am of the view that
the learned Magistrate erred in law in holding that
the Magistrate's Court had no jurisdiction in the
matter and the order of the Court is that the case
be referred to the Magistrate for determination.
