Two of the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury

Dated the 19th day of February, 1948







These Rules provide new forms of claim for compensation in respect of requisitions of land made or relinquished after the commencement of the Requisitioned Land and War Works Act, 1948, in order to fit in with the new basis of compensation laid down by that Act. They also provide a form of claim for an increase of rental compensation under that Act in respect of land already requisitioned.
