3Appeal from designation of premises

(1)Within fourteen days from the designation of any premises, any person having any estate or interest therein may appeal to the Minister against the designation thereof on the ground—

(a)that the whole or any part of the premises is required for use for purposes of public importance and that accordingly it is inexpedient that they should be designated as aforesaid; or

(b)that the whole or any part of the premises is required for use as a private air-raid shelter for the persons in the premises or in the building of which they form part.

(2)If on any such appeal the Minister is satisfied as to the truth of the grounds of the appeal, he may, if he thinks fit, order that the designation of the premises shall cease to have effect, or that it shall cease to have effect as respects a specified part of the premises originally designated.

(3)Where a designation so ceases to have effect as respects the whole or any part of any premises, the premises or part shall not again be designated without the leave of the Minister.

(4)Nothing in this section applies to the premises mentioned in subsection (5) of the last preceding section.
