    Whereas the Auckland Agricultural and Pastoral Association is the lessee of land from the Cornwall Park Trust Board in the Borough of One Tree Hill upon which it holds its annual show:

    And whereas the Cornwall Park Trust Board has no objections to the provisions of this Act:

    And whereas it is not possible to attain all the objects of this Act otherwise than by legislation.
