(1)Where any compensation (in this Act referred to as “Part II compensation” ) is payable under this Part in respect of a compensatable estate in land (other than a compensatable estate which at the date of the relevant decision is the subject of a settlement), the Ministry shall pay that compensation to the person who was entitled to that estate at the date of the relevant decision, except that if that person does not make a claim for the compensation, the Ministry may pay the compensation to any person or persons (being persons entitled to equitable interests) who as against the person in whom the compensatable estate is vested are entitled absolutely to that estate.

(2)Where any Part II compensation is payable in respect of a compensatable estate in land (being a compensatable estate which at the date of the relevant decision is the subject of a settlement), the Ministry shall pay that compensation to the trustees of the settlement, except that where the trustees do not make a claim for the compensation, the Ministry may—

(a)where the compensatable estate in question is vested in trustees, pay the compensation to the persons, if any, who as against the trustees are entitled absolutely to that estate;

(b)where the compensatable estate is not vested in trustees, pay the compensation to the persons, if any, who as against the trustees of the settlement are entitled absolutely to the capital moneys of the settlement.

(3)Where under subsection (1) or (2) the Ministry is required to pay any Part II compensation to any trustees, the Ministry may, if there is only one trustee or the others cannot be found (or being corporations have been dissolved), pay the compensation to one trustee of a trust or settlement, notwithstanding anything in any enactment or any instrument.

(4)Where the amount of any Part II compensation which is payable in respect of a compensatable estate does not exceed fifty pounds, the Ministry may, without prejudice to subsections (1) and (2), pay the compensation to any person who at the date of the relevant decision was entitled to the rents and profits of the compensatable estate in respect of which the compensation was payable or, where he is under a disability, to his guardian or committee.

(5)Where the Ministry is unable to determine to whom any Part II compensation is payable under this section, the Ministry may—

(a)where the amount of the compensation does not exceed[F3 £30,000], pay the money into the county court, and that court may exercise all the jurisdiction exercisable by the High Court under the Lands Clauses Acts in relation to the compensation;

(b)where the amount of the compensation exceeds[F3 £30,000], pay the money into the High Court, and that Court may deal with the compensation under the Lands Clauses Acts as if the compensation were purchase money under those Acts coming to persons having limited interests.

(6)Where the Ministry pays any Part II compensation to any person under this section or into court under subsection (5), the liability of the Ministry to pay the compensation shall, to the extent of the payment, be discharged.
