Report No. 76
1.24. Act of 1940.-
The framers of the Act, while re-enacting the provisions of the Act of 1899, or of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908, relevant to arbitration, took the opportunity of drawing upon the (English) Arbitration Act of 1934. The Act of 1940 is an Act to consolidate and amend the law relating to arbitration. It is, therefore, primarily intended to be a complete code of the law.
