23(1)This paragraph shall apply in relation to a disposal of an asset which is land in the United Kingdom, or an estate or interest in land in the United Kingdom—

(a)if, but for this paragraph, the expenditure allowable as a deduction in computing under this Schedule the gain accruing on the disposal would include any expenditure incurred before 6th April 1965, and

(b)if the consideration for the asset acquired on the disposal exceeds what its market value would be if, immediately before the disposal, it had become unlawful to carry out any development in, on or over the land other than development of the kinds specified in Schedule 3 to the Town and Country Planning Act 1962 (for land in England and Wales or Northern Ireland) or Schedule 3 to the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1947 (for land in Scotland). In this sub-paragraph " development" has, in relation to land in England or Wales or Northern Ireland, the meaning given by the Town and Country Planning Act 1962 and, in relation to land in Scotland, the meaning given by the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1947.

(2)For the purposes of this Part of this Act, including Part I of this Schedule, it shall be assumed in relation to the disposal and, if it is a part disposal, in relation to any subsequent disposal of the asset which is land in the United Kingdom or an estate or interest in land in the United Kingdom that that asset was sold by the person making the disposal, and immediately re-acquired by him, at its market value on 6th April 1965.

(3)Sub-paragraph (2) above shall apply also in relation to any prior part disposal of the asset and, if tax has been charged, or relief allowed, by reference to that part disposal on a different footing, all such adjustments shall be made, whether by way of assessment or discharge or repayment of tax as are required to give effect to the provisions of this sub-paragraph.

(4)Sub-paragraph (2) above shall not apply in relation to a disposal of assets—

(a)if on the assumption in that sub-paragraph a gain would accrue on that disposal to the person making the disposal and either a smaller gain or a loss would so accrue (computed in accordance with the provisions of Part I of this Schedule) if the said sub-paragraph (2) did not apply, or

(b)if on the assumption in the said sub-paragraph (2) a loss would so accrue and either a smaller loss or a gain would accrue if the said sub-paragraph (2) did not apply,

and accordingly the amount of the gain or loss accruing on the disposal shall be computed without regard to the provisions of this Part of this Schedule except that in a case where this sub-paragraph would otherwise substitute a loss for a gain or a gain for a loss it shall be assumed, in relation to the disposal, that the relevant assets were sold by the owner, and immediately re-acquired by him, for a consideration such that, on the disposal, neither a gain nor a loss accrued to the person making the disposal.
