This Act provides for the compulsory acquisition or acquisition by agreement of neglected land and the subsequent sale of such land to natives. “Neglected land” means land suitable for agricultural use which is not being fully and efficiently utilized for agricultural purposes. The owner of land may be required to show cause why land is not neglected land and the owner of land found to be neglected, may be required to ensure the utilization of such land. If the owner fails to show cause why neglected land should not be acquired by compulsory purchase, the Minister shall issue an Order that the land be compulsorily acquired. Native land acquired by the Crown under this Act shall not cease to be native land for the purposes of the Native Lands Act by virtue of that acquisition or of its subsequent alienation to a local government council, notwithstanding the definition thereof in that Act. Where land has been acquired under this Act for sale to indigent natives it shall be offered for sale to such persons in accordance with sections 16 and 17.
