Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

3(1)The Corporation shall not be liable to make a farm loss payment except on a claim made by the person entitled to it before the end of the period of one year beginning with the date on which the requirement in paragraph 1(1)(b) above is complied with.

(2)Any such claim shall be made in such form, and shall contain such particulars, as may be prescribed by regulations made by the Secretary of State.

(3)Where the agricultural unit containing the land affected is occupied for the purposes of a partnership firm, paragraphs 1 and 2 above shall have effect in relation to the firm and not the partners individually (any interest of a partner in the land acquired being treated as an interest of the firm) except that the requirements in paragraph 1 above as to the new unit shall be treated as complied with in relation to the firm as soon as they are complied with by any one of the persons who were members of the firm.

(4)Where a person dies before the expiration of the period for making a claim to a farm loss payment and would have been entitled to such a payment if he had made a claim within that period, a claim to that payment may be made, before the expiration of that period, by his personal representative.

(5)A farm loss payment shall carry interest at the applicable rate (if any) from the date mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) above until payment.
