20Jurisdiction of courts as to colonial stock

In any legal proceeding in a court in the United Kingdom in relation to the register of colonial stock to which this Act applies, or to an entry in or omission from such register, or to a right or title to or interest in any such colonial stock, or any dividend thereon, the jurisdiction of such court shall not be objected to on the ground only that the registrar is the agent of a colonial government, and the registrar, whether a party or not to such proceeding, shall comply with any order made by such court in relation to the matters aforesaid. Any person claiming to be interested in colonial stock to which this Act applies, or in any dividend thereon, may present a petition of right in England in relation to such stock or dividend, and the like proceedings may be had upon such petition as in the case of any other petition of right, subject to this qualification, that the certificate of the judgment, decree, rule, or order of the court may be left with the registrar instead of with the Commissioners of Hex-Majesty's Treasury, and such judgment, decree, rule or order shall be complied with by the registrar or other agent of the colonial government having possession in England of moneys of such government instead of by the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury.
