Public Transport Regulation Act 2009
Admissibility in evidence of documents.
38.— (1) All books and other documents directed or authorised by or under any enactment to be kept by the Commission and which, immediately before the dissolution day, would be receivable in evidence shall, notwithstanding the dissolution of the Commission, be admitted in evidence on or after the dissolution day as if this Part had not been enacted.
(2) Whenever an extract from or certificate of the contents of any book or other document directed or authorised by or under any enactment to be kept by the Commission would, if verified in a particular manner by a particular officer of that body, have been admissible immediately before the dissolution day as evidence of those contents, an extract from or certificate of the contents of that book or document shall, if verified in such particular manner by an officer of the Authority (whose official position it shall not be necessary to prove) authorised by the Authority in that behalf, be admitted, on or after the dissolution day, as evidence of such contents to the same extent as such first-mentioned extract or certificate would have been so admitted if this Part had not been enacted.
(3) A copy of or extract from any document referred to in subsection (1) produced by the Authority and certified to be a true copy under the hand of an officer of that Authority (whose official position it shall not be necessary to prove) authorised by the Authority for that purpose shall in all legal proceedings be admissible in evidence as of equal validity with the original document and no process for compelling the production of any such document by the Authority shall issue from any court except with the leave of that court.
