(3)If it falls to the court to determine any of the terms and conditions of the new tenancy (other than any term or condition as to the rent payable thereunder) the court shall determine those terms or conditions as if the compulsory rights order had not been made; but, in so far as any such terms or conditions of the new tenancy impose an obligation or restriction in respect of land comprised in the compulsory rights order, the court may suspend the operation of that obligation or restriction during the period of occupation.

Provided that the court shall not entertain such a reference unless the proceedings are begun within twelve months after the end of the period of occupation.

(5)On a reference under the last preceding sub-paragraph, the court shall determine what variations (if any) should be made in the terms and conditions of the tenancy, as mentioned in that sub-paragraph, and the date (not being earlier than the end of the period of occupation) from which any such variations are to take effect or to be treated as having taken effect; and as from that date the tenancy shall have effect, or, as the case may be, shall be treated as having had effect, subject to any variations determined by the court under this paragraph.

23(1)The provisions of this paragraph shall have effect, in the case of a tenancy to which this Part of this Schedule applies, where an application under subsection (1) of section twenty-four of the Act of 1954—E+W+S

(a)is made by the tenant before the end of the period of occupation, but falls to be determined by the court after the end of that period, or

(b)is made by the tenant within twelve months after the end of that period,

and the landlord opposes the application on grounds consisting of or including any of the grounds specified in paragraphs (a) and (c) of subsection (1) of section thirty of that Act (which relate respectively to the state of repair of the holding and to the tenant’s use or management of the holding during the current tenancy).

(2)If the court is satisfied that the matters to which the objection in question relates are attributable to a change in the state of the land resulting from the occupation and use thereof in the exercise of rights conferred by the compulsory rights order, the court, in so far as it considers it reasonable to do so in the circumstances, may disregard those matters in determining whether to make an order for the grant of a new tenancy.

(3)The provisions of the last preceding sub-paragraph shall be without prejudice to the operation of paragraph 14 of this Schedule in relation to things done or omitted during the period of occupation.

24(1)In relation to an application made under subsection (1) of section twenty-four of the Act of 1954 (whether before or after the commencement of this Act) which falls to be determined by the court at a time when the current tenancy is a tenancy to which this Part of this Schedule applies (being a time on or after the operative date of the order in question and before the end of the period of occupation) section thirty-seven of that Act (under which a tenant is entitled to compensation from the landlord if an order for the grant of a new tenancy is precluded on certain grounds therein mentioned) shall apply subject to the following provisions of this paragraph.E+W+S

(2)In subsection (1) of that section—

(a)the reference to paragraphs (f) and (g) of subsection (1) of section thirty of that Act shall be construed as a reference to those paragraphs as modified by sub-paragraph (1) of paragraph 21 of this Schedule;

(b)the reference to quitting the holding shall be construed as a reference to the termination of the current tenancy.

(3)In subsection (2) of that section, for any reference to the rateable value of the holding there shall be substituted a reference to the amount which would have been the rateable value of the holding on the material date if—

(a)the compulsory rights order in question had not been made, and the [F30opencast planning permission] referred to in that order had not been granted and no application [F31for opencast planning permission had been made], and

(b)so much of the land comprised in the order as is comprised in the current tenancy had remained in the state in which it was immediately before the operative date of the order.

(4)Paragraphs (a) to (c) of subsection (5) of that section shall not apply; but—

(a)the amount which, in the circumstances mentioned in the last preceding sub-paragraph, would have been the rateable value of the holding on the material date shall be taken to be the value which, in those circumstances, and apart from any exemption from assessment to rates, would on a proper assessment have been the value to be entered in the valuation list as the annual value of the holding; and

(b)the provisions of subsection (5) of that section as to the determination of disputes and as to appeals, and the provisions of subsection (6) of that section (which authorises the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to make rules as to procedure) shall apply in relation to any dispute or reference relating to that amount as they apply in relation to any such dispute or reference as is mentioned in those provisions.

(5)The modifications of the said section thirty-seven specified in the preceding provisions of this paragraph shall apply without prejudice to the operation, in relation to that section, of paragraph 20 of this Schedule.

(6)In this paragraph “the material date”, in relation to an application under subsection (1) of section twenty-four of the Act of 1954, means the date of the landlord’s notice under section twenty-five of that Act or under subsection (6) of section twenty-six of that Act, as the case may be, and “annual value” has the same meaning as in section thirty-seven of that Act.
