This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act.

Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.

(3)The tenant of an allotment to which Part II. of this Act applies may, if [F8he is not a tenant under a farm business tenancy and]he so elects, claim compensation for improvements under [F9section 3 of the Allotments Act 1922], instead of under the [F10Agricultural Holdings Act 1986], as amended by this section, notwithstanding that the allotment exceeds two acres in extent.
(4)A tenant of any small holding or allotment [F11who is not a tenant under a farm business tenancy]may, before the expiration of his tenancy, remove any fruit and other trees and bushes planted or acquired by him for which he has no claim for compensation, and may remove any toolhouse, shed, greenhouse, fowl-house, or pigsty built or acquired by him for which he has no claim for compensation.
