Harris v Minister of the Interior (no.2)

[1952] 4 SA 769

Case summary last updated at 06/02/2020 13:09 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Harris v Minister of the Interior (no.2)

A law was passed in the SA parliament by a simple majority, when relating to a matter which the SA Act 1909 had entrenched so as to require a 2/3 majority. Despite Statute of Westminster 1931, which said that no act of SA parliament was invalid because it conflicted with a UK act, the court nevertheless held that the act was invalid because it contravened the rules of procedure.
