Public Assistance Act, 1939

Annulment of compulsory acquisition order by the High Court.

69.(1) Any person who or whose property is affected by a compulsory acquisition order may, within three weeks after the first publication by advertisement of notice of the confirmation of such order by the Minister, apply to the High Court for the complete or the partial annulment of such order, and the High Court, if it is satisfied that such compulsory acquisition order or any part thereof was made in excess of or was otherwise not authorised by the powers conferred by this Part of this Act or that the person making such application or any other person has been substantially prejudiced by any failure to comply in relation to such order with the provisions of this Part of this Act, may, as the High Court shall think proper, annul the whole of such order or annul a part of such order.

(2) Where an application to the High Court under this section is pending, the High Court may, if it so thinks proper, suspend the operation of the compulsory acquisition order to which such application relates until such application has been finally determined.

(3) Save as is otherwise provided by this section a compulsory acquisition order shall not be capable of being annulled, quashed, or otherwise questioned (whether before or after confirmation by the Minister) by any Court.
