(2)Such an objection as aforesaid may be lodged—

Amendment of Valuation Lists in London

2(1)In respect of the period of twelve months beginning oh the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, the following provisions shall have effect in relation to hereditaments in the County of London,—

(a)as respects any hereditament which has become or ceased to be an agricultural, industrial, or freight transport hereditament at any time before the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, subsection (1) of section seventy of this Act shall have effect as if the words " in the course of any year " were omitted therefrom; and

(b)a provisional list made by virtue of the said subsection and sent to the assessment committee before the sixth day of April, nineteen hundred and thirty, or sent to them in compliance with a requisition served on the rating authority before that date, shall have effect as from the date on which the hereditament became or ceased to be an agricultural, industrial, or freight transport hereditament, as the case may be, or as from the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty nine, whichever is the later.

(2)If any person, being a person entitled to object to a provisional list, is aggrieved by any decision of the assessment committee with respect to such a provisional list as aforesaid sent to them before the first day of October, nineteen hundred and thirty, or sent to them in compliance with a requisition served on the rating authority before that date, or if any person by whom a requisition for such a list has been so served is aggrieved by the failure of the rating authority to comply therewith within six weeks after the service thereof, he may appeal to quarter sessions, and notwithstanding anything in section forty-two of the Valuation (Metropolis) Act, 1869, notice of any such appeal shall be given within twenty-eight days after the decision or failure, as the case may be, and any such appeal may be heard by quarter sessions at any date but, save as aforesaid, such appeals shall be made in like manner and the decision thereon shall have the like effect as in the case of appeals against decisions of the assessment committee on objections to new valuation lists.

(3)In the case of any hereditament included in a provisional list as respects which a right of appeal to quarter sessions is given by this paragraph so much of paragraph (10) of section forty-seven of the Valuation (Metropolis) Act, 1869, as provides for repayments and allowances if the value of the hereditament included in a provisional list is reduced when the next revision of the valuation list takes place shall not apply.

3For the purpose of totals of values in the county of London, any amendment made in a valuation list in force on the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, on the ground that a hereditament was or was not on that date an agricultural, industrial, or freight transport hereditament shall, if made by means of a special list prepared in accordance with the Hating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act, 1928, or by means of a provisional list sent to the assessment committee before the first day of October, nineteen hundred and thirty, or sent to them in compliance with a requisition served on the rating authority before that date, have effect notwithstanding anything in subsection (11) of section forty-seven of the Valuation (Metropolis) Act, 1869, as if it had been made by a supplemental fist coming into force on the sixth day of April, nineteen hundred and thirty.

Provisions as to Revenue Officer

4Where any proposal for the amendment of a valuation list or the making of any provisional fist involves a question whether a hereditament ought to be shown in any such list as having been on the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, an agricultural, industrial, or freight transport hereditament, the revenue officer shall, save that he shall not be entitled to contend that the gross value or net annual value of a hereditament as a whole ought to be increased, have the like rights with respect to receiving copies of provisional lists and of proposals and notices in connection therewith, making and opposing objections thereto, and appearing upon any proceedings relating thereto, and with respect to appealing and receiving notices of and resisting appeals as if he were the occupier of the hereditament.

Supplemental Lists in London

6Notwithstanding anything in subsection (2) of section one of the Bating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act, 1928, it shall not be necessary for an agricultural, industrial or freight transport hereditament to be distinguished as such in any supplemental list which will come into force in the County of London on the sixth day of April, nineteen hundred and thirty, and nothing contained in any such supplemental list shall operate to alter the valuation list in force immediately before the said date as respects any hereditament which in that valuation list is so distinguished as aforesaid.
