Practice – Settlement of action. The plaintiffs had commenced an action which, on the day of the hearing, was settled by agreement. The parties informed the judge that there was a settlement, it was personally ratified by the parties and such was recorded by the court. The plaintiffs then, unsuccessfully, applied to the Supreme Court of Mauritius for a new trial. The Privy Council dismissed the plaintiffs' appeal as the Supreme Court had applied the correct test to the facts.
