(a)provisions imposing duties or conferring powers for any of the objects specified in sub-paragraphs (a) to (c) of paragraph 3 of Schedule 2 to the 1964 Act (objects for which harbour revision orders may be made), including powers to make byelaws;

(2)A provision authorising the compulsory acquisition of land which is included by virtue of this section in a harbour reorganisation scheme shall be treated for the purposes of section 18(3) of the 1964 Act (maps) and Schedule 4 to that Act (submission and confirmation of such schemes) as a provision transferring an interest in land ; and—

(a)the Minister may, if an objection is made to any provision authorising the compulsory purchase of land, instead of causing an inquiry to be held under sub-paragraph (3) or (5) of paragraph 3 of that Schedule, afford an opportunity to the objector, and if the latter avails himself of the opportunity, to the person who submitted the scheme and any other persons to whom it appears to the Minister expedient to afford it, of appearing before and being heard by a person appointed by the Minister for the purpose, and the said sub-paragraph (3) or (5), as the case may be, shall apply in relation to the report of a person so appointed as it applies in relation to the report of a person who held an inquiry under that sub-paragraph ; and

(b)paragraph 6 of Schedule 3 to that Act (provision for compulsory acquisition of land of statutory undertakers in harbour revision orders) shall apply in relation to a submission of a harbour reorganisation scheme as it applies in relation to an application for a. harbour revision order.

(3)If a provision authorising the execution of works on any land is included in a harbour reorganisation scheme by virtue of this section, the notice required to be published by paragraph 2(a) of Schedule 4 to that Act (publication of notice of such a scheme) shall contain, in addition to the other matters required to be contained in the notice, a general description of the nature of the works and the land on which it is proposed to execute them.

(4)In accordance with subsection (1) of this section—

(a)the reference in paragraph (f) of section 18(2) of the 1964 Act to the foregoing paragraphs of that subsection shall be construed as including a reference to subsection (1) of this section ; and
