9Validity of orders

(1)If any person aggrieved by an order desires to question its validity, he may within twenty-one days after the publication of the notice of the making of the order in accordance with the provisions of the Schedule to this Act, make an application for the purpose to the High Court, and if upon any such application the court is satisfied that the order is invalid and, where the invalidity of the order arises from a failure to comply with any provision governing the procedure for the making thereof, is further satisfied that the interests of the applicant have been substantially prejudiced by that failure, the court may quash the order either generally or in so far as it affects any property of the applicant.

(2)Subject to the provisions of the last preceding subsection an order shall not, either before or after its making, be questioned by prohibition or certiorari or in any legal proceedings.
