89Withdrawal of notice of referral

90Effect of referral on enquiry

(2)Proceedings on a referral are “in progress” where—

(a)notice of referral has been given and has not been withdrawn, and

92“Appropriate tribunal”

(1)Where the question to be referred under section 88 is of the market value of any land, the appropriate tribunal is the Lands Tribunal for Scotland.

(b)where determined by or under tribunal rules, the Upper Tribunal, or
