(b)A person being the son of a tenant of a holding on the estate;

(c)A person being the tenant or proprietor of a holding no exceeding five pounds in rateable value, situate in the neighbourhood of the estate; and

(d)A person who within twenty-five years before the passing of this Act was the tenant of a holding to which the Lane Law Acts apply, and who is not at the date of the purchase the tenant or proprietor of that holding: Provided, that is the case of the death of a person to whom an advance under this paragraph might otherwise have been made, the advance may be made to a person nominated by the Land Commission as the personal representative of the deceased person.

(2)Advances under this section shall not, together with the amount (if any) of any previous advance under the Land Purchase Acts then unrepaid by the purchaser, exceed one thousand pounds Provided that the limitation in this subsection may, subject to the other limitations in the Land Purchase Acts, be, exceeded where the Land Commission consider that a larger advance may be sanctioned to any purchaser without prejudice-to the wants and circumstances of other persons residing in the neighbourhood.

(3)The Land Purchase Acts shall, subject to the provisions of this section, apply to the sale of a parcel of land in pursuance of this section, in like manner as if the same was a holding, and the purchaser was the tenant thereof at the time of his making the purchase, and the expression "holding" in those Acts shall include a parcel of land in respect of the purchase of which an advance has been made in pursuance of this section.
