59 Appeals from provisional determinations

(1)

By leave of the Maori Land Court, but not otherwise, an appeal shall lie to the Maori Appellate Court from any provisional or preliminary determination of the Maori Land Court made in the course of any proceedings.

(2)

Any such appeal may be brought by or on behalf of any person who is materially affected by the determination appealed from, or who would be bound by an order made in pursuance of it.

(3)

The Maori Land Court may decline leave where it is satisfied that the interests of justice and of the parties would best be served by completing the proceedings before any appeal is made to the Maori Appellate Court.

(4)

When leave to appeal is so given, the Maori Land Court may either stay further proceedings in the matter or continue the same, but no final order shall be made until the appeal has been finally disposed of or dismissed.

(5)

When any such appeal has been determined by the Maori Appellate Court, no further appeal shall lie at the suit of any person from any final order made in those proceedings by the Maori Land Court, so far as the order conforms to the determination of the Maori Appellate Court.

(6)

Where no leave to appeal is sought against any provisional or preliminary determination by the Maori Land Court in any proceedings, the Maori Appellate Court may decline to hear any appeal against the final order of the Maori Land Court made in those proceedings if it is satisfied that the appellant had a reasonable opportunity to appeal against the provisional or preliminary determination and that the point that would be in issue on the appeal is substantially the same as that to which the provisional or preliminary determination related.
