This Act adds a new part on land to the Tokelau Act of 1948. Any land in Tokelau which at the commencement of the principal Act was owned in fee simple by any person other than the Crown shall for the purposes of this Part of his Act be deemed to he held in fee simple by grant from the Crown, and accordingly shall be deemed not to be Tokelauan land for the purposes of this Part of this Act. Subject to the provisions of this Act, all land in Tokelau is hereby declared be Tokelauan land and is vested in the Crown as the trustee of the beneficial owners thereof, but subject to customary title. The Administrator of Tokelau may exercise on behalf of the Crown all rights of suit, entry, re-entry, receipt of rents and profits, use, management, control, and possession vested in the Crown in respect of any land in Tokelau. Other provisions concern restrictions on alienation of land and fruits of land and expropriation for public purposes.
