§ Mr. Bradshaw
Four orders have been made under section 3 of the Southern Rhodesia Act 1979.
The Southern Rhodesia (Expiring Orders) (Consequential Provisions) Order 1979 (SI 1979 No.1445) made provision consequential on the lapse of a number of orders made under section 2 of the Southern Rhodesia Act 1965. The order contained provisions relating to the Reserve Bank of Rhodesia Orders 1965 and 1967, to proceedings against, and liabilities of, the Government of Rhodesia, to the liability of the registrar and trustees of the sinking fund of any stock issued by that Government or for which that Government were responsible and to the records relating to such stock. The order was revoked on 7 December 1979 and replaced by the Southern Rhodesia (Legal Proceedings and Public Liabilities) Order 1979 (SI 1979 No. 1601).
The Southern Rhodesia (Legal Proceedings and Public Liabilities) Order 1979 (SI 1979 No.1601) replaced the Southern Rhodesia (Expiring Orders) (Consequential Provisions) Order 1979; the subject matter being the same as the order it replaced. The order is still in force and was modified by the Zimbabwe (Independence and Membership of the Commonwealth) (Consequential Provisions) Order 1980 (SI 1980 No. 701) under powers in the Zimbabwe Act 1979.578W
The Southern Rhodesia Constitution (Interim Provisions) Order 1979 (SI 1979 No.1571) made temporary provision for the Government of Southern Rhodesia. The legislative and executive powers, and the prerogative of mercy, were vested in a Governor who could give directions as to the authorities by whom executive powers may be exercised. The order also made provision for the revocation or suspension of a number of earlier constitutional provisions and for the suspension of the appeals to Her Majesty in Council. The order was revoked on 20 March 1980 by the Zimbabwe Constitution (Transitional, Supplementary and Consequential Provisions) Order 1980 (SI 19870 No.395).
The Southern Rhodesia (Sanctions) (Amnesty) Order 1980 (SI 1980 No.565) makes provision for an amnesty, and for discontinuance of criminal proceedings, in respect of offences against certain measures under section 2 of the Southern Rhodesia Act 1965, the United Nations Act 1946 or the enactments specified in Part 2 of Schedule 2 of the order, by which effect is given to resolutions of the United Nations Security Council providing for the imposition of economic or other sanctions against Southern Rhodesia. The order is still in force.
