And whereas it is desired to validate the said appointment:
Be it therefore enacted as follows:
The appointment of Walter Black, Esquire, to be a member of the Legislative Council of New Zealand as hereinbefore recited is hereby validated, and the said Walter Black shall accordingly be deemed to have been duly summoned to the Legislative Council, to be a member thereof, on 8 September 1941.
