1(1)The Acquisition of Land (Authorisation Procedure) Act, 1946, shall apply to a compulsory purchase of land under Part II of this Act as if this Act had been in force immediately before the commencement of that Act, but that Act and the enactments applied by that Act shall have effect subject to the provisions of this Act.
(2)In the case of a compulsory purchase of land under Part II of this Act section one hundred and thirty-three of the Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845 (which relates to promoters making good deficiencies in rates), shall not apply.
(3)Any compensation payable in pursuance of a compulsory purchase under Part II of this Act by a local authority in respect of any lands, estate or interest of another local authority which would, but for this sub-paragraph, be paid into court in manner provided by the Lands Clauses Acts may, if the Minister consents, instead of being paid into court, be paid and applied as the Minister may determine. A decision of the Minister under this sub-paragraph shall be final and conclusive.
2(1)A notice relating to a compulsory purchase of land under Part II of this Act which by paragraph (b) of sub-paragraph (1) of paragraph 3 of the First Schedule to the Acquisition of Land (Authorisation Procedure) Act, 1946, is to be served on an owner, lessee or occupier of such land may be served toy addressing it to him by the description of " owner " or " lessee " or " occupier " of the land (describing it) to which it relates and by delivering it to some person on the premises or, if there is no person on the premises to whom it may be delivered, by affixing it, or a copy of it, to some conspicuous part of the premises.

(a)the like consequences shall then ensue, with respect to the determination of the rights and liabilities of any person arising out of any interest of his in the house or any part thereof, as would have ensued if the authority had taken actual possession on the date of the notice, and the authority may deal with the premises in all respects as if they had done so ; and
(b)for the purposes of section one hundred and twenty-one of the Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845 (which provides for payment of compensation to persons entitled to possession under short tenancies who are required to give up possession), any person who by virtue of this paragraph ceases to be entitled to receive rent in respect of any premises shall be deemed to have been required to give up possession thereof.
