CHAPTER 74:04

CASUAL REVENUE ACT

An Act relating to the appropriation of the Casual Revenue
of the State.

[4TH APRIL 1894]

1. This Act may be cited as the Casual Revenue Act.

2. In this Act, the expression “casual revenue” means all the
prerogative rights relating to property now vested in the State by
section 6 of the Constitution of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago
Act, such as former droits of the Crown and of the Admiralty and
bona vacantia including treasure trove, wrecks, waifs and estrays.

3. (1) The President may order the payment of any claim in
respect of any casual revenue received by the State which, upon
legal, equitable or moral grounds, is established by any person to
the satisfaction of the President.

(2) Any payment ordered by the President under
subsection (1) shall be charged on the Consolidated Fund.

4. (1) Where a person who prefers a claim to any casual
revenue fails to prove the claim, he may nevertheless present a
summary petition to the High Court against the Attorney General
as respondent; and if he verifies his said claim by evidence to the
satisfaction of the said Court, the Court shall make such order in
the premises, including any award of costs, as justice may require,
and, upon the application of such person or any other claimant or
person or of the Attorney General, shall vary such order form time
to time as may be deemed expedient, and shall certify the same to
the President, to the intent that the claimant may have relief in the
premises according to such order.

(2) The claimant shall, as a condition precedent to the
hearing of his petition, deposit with the Registrar of the Supreme Court
such sum of money to answer costs as the High Court shall order.
