Provided that, if in any case the representative body so require, the annual income shall be taken to be—

(iii)where the contract is not a building or a mining lease, one twenty-fifth of the gross value of the land as determined for the purposes of Part I. of the M1Finance (1909–10) Act 1910;
(c)in the case of land which, at the date of disestablishment, is not subject to a contract of tenancy, the annual value of the land as ascertained at that date for the purposes of Schedule A. of the Income Tax Acts, after deducting the amount of any fixed charges on the land:
