7Compensation

(1)Where a manoeuvres Order has been made, full compensation shall be paid out of moneys provided by Parliament for any damage to person or property or any interference with rights or privileges arising from any of the provisions of this Act, whether or not occasioned by the acts or defaults of the authorised forces, including compensation in respect of any expenses reasonably incurred in protecting person, property, rights and privileges and in respect of any damage by reason of excessive weight or extraordinary traffic caused to any highway for the repair of which any public body or any individual is responsible.

(2)The manoeuvres commission or commissions formed in connection with the Order shall, with the concurrence of the Treasury, appoint one or more compensation officers to determine as speedily as possible any claim for compensation under this section and settle the amount payable.

(3)The said commission or commissions may make regulations with respect to the procedure for making and determining claims for compensation, for limiting the time within which claims must be made, and for regulating the mode in which compensation is to be paid.

(4)If any claim for compensation under this section is not settled by agreement between a compensation officer appointed under this section and the claimant, the difference between them shall be referred to arbitration; and, in the application of this subsection to Scotland, any question falling to be determined by arbitration shall be determined by a single arbiter appointed, in default of agreement, by the sheriff on the application of any party to the question.
