S.E. Asia Fire Bricks v. Non Metallic Minerals Union [1981]

Industrial Relations Act 1967 stated that an award of
Industrial Court ‘shall be final and conclusive, and no award shall be
challenged, appealed against, reviewed, quashed or called into question in any
court of law’
Dispute arose between appellant company and respondent
TU.
Matter referred to Industrial Court, who found in
favour of TU.
Company applied to High Court of Malaysia for order to
quash award on ground it contained errors of law on its face.
Eventually case got to Privy Council.
Held by Privy Council that words of Act were amply
wide enough to oust jurisdiction of High Court to review decision by
certiorari, even where there was error of law on face of record, unless error
was one affecting jurisdiction.
