These Regulations are designed to standardise applications for payment of compensation under the Forestry Acts. Their main purpose is to bring into operation those provisions of the Forestry Act, 1956, which empower the Minister for Lands, in certain circumstances, to acquire land for forestry purposes from (and to pay compensation to) a person who is unable to show full title to the land and also to pay compensation to any other person who may later show that he was entitled to an interest in the land and who, within six years of the date of the acquisition of the land by the Minister, applies for payment of compensation in respect of that interest.
