ANTIGUA. 20 Land Acquisition. No. of 1957.
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 competeihcy 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 Ordinance, 1957, of the Virgin Islands and its provisions are almost the same as those of the Land Acquisition Act, 1944.
