Appointment by the Chief Justice of commissioners for oaths

In pursuance of the powers vested in me by the Courts (Supplemental Provisions) Act 1961 I hereby make the following direction and regulation concerning applications of persons to be appointed a commissioner for oaths:

1. In an application to be appointed a commissioner for oaths the petitioner shall not be required to establish that the existing number of commissioners available for the administration of oaths in the county, city or district for which appointment is sought is inadequate to meet the needs of business and commerce and no averment as to such matter shall be necessary in the petition or supporting documents.

2. This direction shall take effect on and from January 26th 2006

John L. Murray
