Trinidad and Tobago - Statute - Construction - Compulsory purchase of land by Crown - Appellants claiming reversionary interest in land no longer required for the purpose for which it had been acquired - Whether land vesting in Crown absolutely - Land Acquisition Ordinances 1925||1941, s 6 - Land Acquisition Ordinance 1941, s 6.
The correct interpretation to be placed on the transitional provisions set out in s1 of the Land Acquisition Ordinance 1941 was that legal effect was to be given to a vesting of land, prior to the introduction of the 1941 Ordinance, as much as to the assessment of compensation under the 1941 Ordinance, as if both those acts had been taken under the 1941 Ordinance.
