F19(1)Where the land comprised in a compulsory rights order consists of or includes land requisitioned for opencast operations, and it appears to the [F2Corporation] that, for either or both of the reasons mentioned in the next following sub-paragraph, it is necessary that the period specified in the order, as the period for which the order is to have effect, should extend beyond the tenth anniversary of the date of requisition of that land,—E+W+S

(a)the period specified in the order may extend beyond that anniversary, and shall (subject to the following provisions of this paragraph) be such period as the [F2Corporation] consider necessary in the circumstances;

(b)the order shall state the reasons for which the [F2Corporation] consider it necessary that the period specified in the order should so extend; and

(c)paragraph 7 of this Schedule shall not apply to the order, and the provisions as to the making and confirmation of the order shall be in accordance with subsection (5) of section four of this Act.

(2)The said reasons are—

(b)that there is in force an agreement relating to that land made between the [F2Corporation]and another person before the eighteenth day of December, nineteen hundred and fifty-seven, which provides for the working of coal by that person by opencast operations, and is not an agreement under which the coal is to become the property of that other person, and a longer period is required for completing the operations provided for by the agreement.
