dc.description.abstract The primary purpose of this paper is the statement and critical examination of the law as to motor vehicle insurance against third party risks as prescribed by Part V Transport Act 1949. However, before we embark upon such examination in Chapter 4 several preliminary but important aspects of this third party insurance call for explanation.

Vol. 219 New Zealand Parliamentary Debates p.589. These statements will bear interesting comparison with the way the same legislation has been interpreted and developed in and by our New Zealand Courts "according to its true intent meaning and spirit". Section 5 (j) Acts Interpretation Act, 1924 Principal features of this insurance are that it is compulsory for all motor vehicle See definition of "motor vehicle" Section 2, Transport Act, 1949. owners and it has been elevated into a statutory class of business and the underlying reasons are also to be found in the pages of our Parliamentary Debates. en_NZ
