5Powers of manoeuvres commission to give directions

(1)Subject to section six of this Act, a manoeuvres commission formed in connection with a manoeuvres Order may issue such directions as the commission may consider necessary or expedient for the purpose of avoiding damage or disturbance in consequence of the execution of the manoeuvres authorised by the Order beyond what is necessary for the effective carrying out of those manoeuvres.

(2)Any such directions shall be so framed as to impose requirements either on the authorised forces or on, or on any class of, occupiers of land, being land comprised within the manoeuvres area or land in the vicinity of land so comprised.

(3)Requirements imposed by the directions on the authorised forces may, where the Commission consider it necessary or expedient for avoiding damage or disturbance, include provisions precluding those forces from entering upon land specified in the directions or from using a source of water so specified, or restricting entry upon such land or the use of such land or such a source of water by those forces, notwithstanding that the land or source of water is within the manoeuvres area; and it shall be the duty of the officer directing the manoeuvres to issue such instructions to the authorised forces as, in the opinion of that officer, will secure compliance with any such requirements.

(4)If, where a requirement has been imposed by any such directions on the occupier of any land, that occupier without reasonable cause refuses or fails to comply with that requirement and in consequence thereof any livestock of his is injured, or any other property of his is damaged, he shall not be entitled to compensation in respect of that injury or damage under section seven of this Act.

(5)Where, by virtue of subsection (3) of section four of this Act, two manoeuvres commissions have been formed in connection with any manoeuvres Order, the power to issue directions conferred by this section may be exercised by those commissions either separately in relation to their respective parts of the manoeuvres area or jointly in relation to the whole of that area.
