(1)The Commissioners shall cease to have the management of any part of the land in Regent's Park which at the beginning of the year nineteen hundred and sixty-one was occupied by the Zoological Society of London, and the Minister of Works shall have the like powers of management over it as if it had been included in the land transferred to the management of the Commissioners of Works and Public Buildings by section twenty-two of the Crown Lands Act, 1851.

(2)Without prejudice to his other powers of management, the Minister of Works shall have power from time to time to grant to the Zoological Society of London, on such terms and conditions as he may with the approval of the Treasury determine, leases of all or any of the land occupied by the Society in Regent's Park at the beginning of the year nineteen hundred and sixty-one, or of neighbouring land under his management in Regent's Park up to a total (exclusive of the land so occupied) of ten acres:

Provided that every such lease shall be made to take effect in possession, and shall be for a term ending not more than sixty years from the date of the lease.

(3)All rights and obligations enforceable by or against the Commissioners under or by virtue of any lease or agreement made before the commencement of this Act with respect to any land transferred by subsection (1) above to the management of the Minister of Works, or under or by virtue of any agreement relating to either of the tunnels under the Outer Circle which connect the land in Regent's Park occupied by the Zoological Society of London, shall be enforceable by or against the Minister instead of the Commissioners.

(4)The Parks Regulation Acts, 1872 and 1926, shall not extend to any part of Regent's Park which is for the time being occupied by the Zoological Society of London.

(5)Notwithstanding the powers exercisable by any other authority in Regent's Park, the Outer Circle and all roads within the Outer Circle, together with the road leading from the Outer Circle to Hanover Gate and with the road leading from the Outer Circle to Prince Albert Road at its junction with Avenue Road, shall be deemed to be under the management of the Minister of Works within the meaning of section one of the Parks Regulation (Amendment) Act, 1926, and any regulations made before the commencement of this Act by virtue of section two of that Act (as extended by any subsequent enactment) shall have effect accordingly.
