   (1) Where a judgment has been obtained in a superior Court in any part of His Majesty’s dominions outside the United Kingdom to which this Part of this Act extends, the judgment creditor may apply to the High Court in England or Ireland, or to the Court of Session in Scotland, at any time within twelve months after the date of the judgment, or such longer period as may be allowed by the Court, to have the judgment registered in the Court, and on any such application the Court may, if in all the circumstances of the case they think it is just and convenient that the judgment should be enforced in the United Kingdom, and subject to the provisions of this section, order the judgment to be registered accordingly.

   (2) No judgment shall be ordered to be registered under this section if—

      (a)   the original Court acted without jurisdiction; or

      (b)   the judgment debtor, being a person who was neither carrying on business nor ordinarily resident within the jurisdiction of the original Court, did not voluntarily appear or otherwise submit or agree to submit to the jurisdiction of that Court; or

      (c)   the judgment debtor, being the defendant in the proceedings, was not duly served with the process of the original Court and did not appear, notwithstanding that he was ordinarily resident or was carrying on business within the jurisdiction of that Court or agreed to submit to the jurisdiction of that Court; or

      (d)   the judgment was obtained by fraud; or

      (e)   the judgment debtor satisfies the registering Court either that an appeal is pending, or that he is entitled and intends to appeal, against the judgment; or

      (f)   the judgment was in respect of a cause of action which for reasons of public policy or for some other similar reason could not have been entertained by the registering Court.

   (3) Where a judgment is registered under this section—

      (a)   the judgment shall, as from the date of registration, be of the same force and effect, and proceedings may be taken thereon, as if it had been a judgment originally obtained or entered up on the date of registration in the registering Court;

      (b)   the registering Court shall have the same control and jurisdiction over the judgment as it has over similar judgments given by itself, but in so far only as relates to execution under this section;

      (c)   the reasonable costs of and incidental to the registration of the judgment (including the costs of obtaining a certified copy thereof from the original Court and of the application for registration) shall be recoverable in like manner as if they were sums payable under the judgment.

   (4) Rules of Court shall provide—

      (a)   for service on the judgment debtor of notice of the registration of a judgment under this section; and

      (b)   for enabling the registering Court an application by the judgment debtor to set aside the registration of a judgment under this section on such terms as the Court thinks fit; and

      (c)   for suspending the execution of a judgment registered under this section until the expiration of the period during which the judgment debtor may apply to have the registration set aside.

   (5) In any action brought in any Court in the United Kingdom on any judgment which might be ordered to be registered under this section, the plaintiff shall not be entitled to recover any costs of the action unless an application to register the judgment under this section has previously been refused or unless the Court otherwise orders.

Where a judgment has been obtained in the High Court in England or Ireland, or in the Court of Session in Scotland, against any person, the Court shall, on an application made by the judgment creditor and on proof that the judgment debtor is resident in some part of His Majesty’s dominions outside the United Kingdom to which this Part of this Act extends, issue to the judgment creditor a certified copy of the judgment.

Provision may be made by rules of Court for regulating the practice and procedure (including scales of fees and evidence), in respect of proceedings of any kind under this Part of this Act.

the expression “judgment” means any judgment or order given or made by a Court in any civil proceedings, whether before or after the passing of this Act, whereby any sum of money is made payable, and includes an award in proceedings on an arbitration if the award has, in pursuance of the law in force in the place where it was made, become enforceable in the same manner as a judgment given by a Court in that place;

His Majesty may by Order in Council declare that this Part of this Act shall apply to any territory which is under His Majesty’s protection, or in respect of which a mandate is being exercised by the Government of any part of His Majesty’s dominions, as if that territory were part of His Majesty’s dominions, and on the making of any such Order this Part of this Act shall, subject to the provisions of the Order, have effect accordingly.

14.   Extent of Part II of Act

   (1) Where His Majesty is satisfied that reciprocal provisions have been made by the legislature of any part of His Majesty’s dominions outside the United Kingdom for the enforcement within that part of His dominions of judgments obtained in the High Court in England, the Court of Session in Scotland, and the High Court in Ireland, His Majesty may by Order in Council declare that this Part of this Act shall extend to that part of His dominions, and on any such Order being made this Part of this Act shall extend accordingly.

ALMERIC FITZROY

COLONIAL PROBATES ACT, 1892

55 VICT. C. 6

AN ACT TO PROVIDE FOR THE RECOGNITION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM OF PROBATES AND LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION GRANTED IN BRITISH POSSESSIONS

[20th May, 1892]

BE it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

1.   Application of Act by Order in Council

Her Majesty the Queen may, on being satisfied that the legislature of any British possession has made adequate provision for the recognition in that possession of probates and letters of administration granted by the Courts of the United Kingdom, direct by Order in Council that this Act shall, subject to any exceptions and modifications specified in the Order, apply to that possession, and thereupon, while the Order is in force, this Act shall apply accordingly.

2.   Sealing in United Kingdom of colonial probates and letters of administration

   (1) Where a Court of probate in a British possession to which this Act applies has granted probate or letters of administration in respect of the estate of a deceased person, the probate or letters so granted may, on being produced to, and a copy thereof deposited with, a Court of probate in the United Kingdom, be sealed with the seal of that Court, and, thereupon, shall be of the like force and effect, and have the same operation in the United Kingdom, as if granted by that Court.

   (2) Provided that the Court shall, before sealing a probate or letters of administration under this section, be satisfied—

      (a)   that probate duty has been paid in respect of so much (if any) of the estate as is liable to probate duty in the United Kingdom; and

      (b)   in the case of letters of administration, that security has been given in a sum sufficient in amount to cover the property (if any) in the United Kingdom to which the letters of administration relate;

and may require such evidence, if any, as it thinks fit as to the domicile of the deceased person.

   (3) The Court may also, if it thinks fit, on the application of any creditor, require, before sealing, that adequate security be given for the payment of debts due from the estate to creditors residing in the United Kingdom.

   (4) For the purposes of this section, a duplicate of any probate or letters of administration sealed with the seal of the Court granting the same, or a copy thereof certified as correct by or under the authority of the Court granting the same, shall have the same effect as the original.

   (5) Rules of Court may be made for regulating the procedure and practice, including fees and costs, in Courts of the United Kingdom, on and incidental to an application for sealing a probate or letters of administration granted in a British possession to which this Act applies. Such rules shall, so far as they relate to probate duty, be made with the consent of the Treasury, and subject to any exceptions and modifications made by such rules, the enactments for the time being in force in relation to probate duty (including the penal provisions thereof) shall apply as if the person who applies for sealing under this section were a person applying for probate or letters of administration.

3.   Application of Act to British Courts in foreign countries

This Act shall extend to authorise the sealing in the United Kingdom of any probate or letters of administration granted by a British Court in a foreign country, in like manner as it authorises the sealing of a probate or letters of administration granted in a British possession to which this Act applies, and the provisions of this Act shall apply accordingly with the necessary modifications.

4.   Orders in Council

   (1) Every Order in Council made under this Act shall be laid before both Houses of Parliament as soon as may be after it is made, and shall be published under the authority of Her Majesty’s Stationery Office.

   (2) Her Majesty the Queen in Council may revoke or alter any Order in Council previously made under this Act.

   (3) Where it appears to Her Majesty in Council that the legislature of part of a British possession has power to make the provision requisite for bringing this Act into operation in that part, it shall be lawful for Her Majesty to direct by Order in Council that this Act shall apply to that part as if it were a separate British possession, and thereupon, while the Order is in force, this Act shall apply accordingly.

5.   Application of Act to probates, etc., already granted

This Act when applied by an Order in Council to a British possession shall, subject to the provisions of the Order, apply to probates and letters of administration granted in that possession either before or after the passing of this Act.

6.   Interpretation

In this Act—

FOR THE REGISTRARS OF THE PRINCIPAL PROBATE REGISTRY IN NON-CONTENTIOUS BUSINESS FOR CARRYING OUT THE PROVISIONS OF THE COLONIAL PROBATES ACT, 1892

92. Application to seal a grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, or copy thereof, under the Colonial Probates Act, 1892, may be made in the Principal Probate Registry by the executor or administrator or the attorney (lawfully authorised for the purpose) of such executor or administrator, either in person or through a solicitor.

93. Such application must be accompanied by an oath of the executor, administrator, or attorney, in the form in the Appendix, or as nearly thereto as the circumstances of the case will allow.

94. The Registrars are to be satisfied that notice of such application has been duly advertised. (Form of advertisement in Appendix.)

95. On application to seal Letters of Administration the administrator or his attorney shall give bond (in the form set out in the Appendix) to cover the personal estate of the deceased within the jurisdiction of the Court. The same practice as to sureties and amount of penalty in bond is to be observed as on application for Letters of Administration.

96. Application by a creditor under section 2, sub-section (3), of the Colonial Probates Act is to be made by summons before one of the Registrars, supported by an affidavit setting out particulars of the claim.

97. In every case, and especially when the domicile of the deceased at the time of death as sworn to in the affidavit differs from that suggested by the description in the grant, the Registrars may require further evidence as to domicile.

98. If it should appear that the deceased was not at the time of death domiciled within the jurisdiction of the Court from which the grant issued, the seal is not to be affixed unless the grant is such as would have been made by the High Court of Justice in England.

99. The grant (or copy grant) to be sealed and the copy to be deposited in the Registry must include copies of all testamentary papers admitted to Probate.

100. When the application to seal a Probate or Letters of Administration is made after the lapse of three years from the death of the deceased, the reason of the delay is to be certified to the Registrars. Should the certificate be unsatisfactory the Registrars are to require such proof of the alleged cause of delay as they may think fit.

101. Special or limited or temporary grants are not to be sealed without an order of one of the registrars.

102. Notice of the sealing in England of a grant is to be sent to the Court from which the grant is issued.

103. When intimation has been received of the re-sealing of an English grant, notice of the revocation of or any alteration in such grant is to be sent to the Court by whose authority such grant was re-sealed.

104. The affidavit for Inland Revenue pursuant to the Customs and Inland Revenue Acts, 1880 and 1881, shall be transmitted to the Commissioners of Inland Revenue as if the person who applied for sealing under the Colonial Probates Act, 1892, were a person applying for Probate or Letters of Administration.

105. The affidavit for Inland Revenue and accounts and schedules forming part thereof, shall be in such form as may be prescribed by the Commissioners of Her Majesty’s Treasury.

[NOTE.-The affidavit to be used will in fact be Form A with some few modifications to suit the circumstances.]

THE KING’S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY

LORD PRESIDENT                SIR JAMES ROSE INNES

LORD CHAMBERLAIN               MR. W. P. SCHREINER

LORD JUSTICE ATKIN

Whereas by section 1 of the Marriage of British Subjects (Facilities) Act, 1915, it is (amongst other things) enacted as follow—

“Where His Majesty is satisfied that the law in force in any part of His Majesty’s dominions outside the United Kingdom makes due provision for the publication of banns or for the giving of notice in respect of marriages between British subjects intended to be solemnised or contracted in the United Kingdom, and for the recognition of certificates for marriage issued by Superintendent Registrars in England and of certificates for marriage issued by Registrars, and certificates of proclamation of banns, in Scotland, and of certificates for marriage issued by Registrars in Ireland as sufficient notice in respect of marriages between British subjects intended to be solemnised or contracted in that part of His Majesty’s dominions, His Majesty may, by Order in Council, declare that this section shall apply to that part of His dominions, and in such case:

“(a)   Where a marriage is intended to be solemnised or contracted in the United Kingdom between a British subject resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland and a British subject resident in that part of His Majesty’s dominions, a certificate of the publication of banns or a certificate of notice of marriage issued in accordance with such law shall in England have the same effect as a certificate for marriage issued by a Superintendent Registrar, and in Scotland and Ireland have the same effect as a certificate for marriage issued by a Registrar in Scotland and Ireland respectively; and

“(b)   Where a marriage is intended to be solemnised or contracted in that part of His Majesty’s dominions between a British subject resident in that part and a British subject resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland, a certificate for marriage may be issued in England by a Superintendent Registrar, or in Scotland or Ireland by a Registrar, in the like manner as if the marriage was to be solemnised or contracted under circumstances requiring the issue of such a certificate, and as if both such British subjects were resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland, as the case may be:”

AND WHEREAS by section 1 of the Marriage of British Subjects (Facilities) Amendment Act, 1916, it is enacted as follows—

“If His Majesty is satisfied that, for the purposes of a marriage to be solemnised or contracted in any part of His dominions outside the United Kingdom between a British subject resident in that part and a British subject resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland, no notice of the marriage is, under the law in force in that part of His dominions, required on the part of the person resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland, His Majesty may, by Order in Council, declare that section 1 of the Marriage of British Subjects (Facilities) Act, 1915, shall apply to that part of His dominions, notwithstanding that the law in force in that part does not make provision for the recognition of certificates for marriage issued in England, Scotland, and Ireland, and of certificates of proclamation of banns issued in Scotland, as sufficient notice in respect of such marriages as aforesaid, provided that the other conditions required by that section are fulfilled:”
