Seat of Government Acceptance Act 1922 (Cth)
In correcting errors in the description of territory transferred under the 1909 Seat of Government Acceptance
and Seat of Government Surrender
Acts, this document amends the area of five of the eight parcels of land described in those Acts.
On 2 September 1920, the New South Wales and Commonwealth governments agreed to alter the 1909 agreement transferring land at Sussex Inlet and in the vicinity of Jervis Bay
to correct ‘certain errors and misdescriptions’ in the specifications in that agreement, made law in the subsequent Acts of both parliaments.
This Act was necessary to replace Clause 5 of the 1909 agreement with a new clause specifying the correct areas of land ‘at Sussex Haven and at and near Jervis Bay’.
