(2)Save as in this Part of this Act otherwise expressly provided, any provision of any document directing that the amount of any payment, not being a payment to which the last foregoing subsection applies, shall be determined by reference to some value as appearing in or ascertained from the valuation list for the time being in force or as shown in, or ascertained in accordance with the Acts relating to, the basis or standard of county rates shall, as from the appointed day, have effect as if for any reference to that value there were therein substituted—

(a)in the case of a document, not being an enactment, as respects which a value is—

(i)agreed upon by all persons having rights or obligations under the document; or

(ii)determined, in default of such agreement, by an arbitrator appointed by the Minister on an application made to him by or on behalf of any such person,

a reference to the value so agreed upon or determined; and

(3)Before making any order under this section, the Minister shall require the applicants to serve a copy of the draft order upon any local authority affected and to give, in terms approved by him and in such manner as he may consider best adapted for informing any other persons affected, public notice of the application for the order and as to the manner in which and the time within which objections to the order may be made, and shall consider any objection which may be duly made within four weeks from the date of the notice, and in the event of any objection being so made and not withdrawn the Minister shall make the order as a provisional order which shall not have effect unless and until confirmed by Parliament.
