Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003

Agriculture Act 1986 (c.49)

Paragraphs 9 & 10

301.The amendments in paragraphs 9 and 10 are consequential on the amendments made to the 1991 Act by sections 75 and 76 of the 2003 Act. These replace compulsory arbitration under the 1991 Act with the extended jurisdiction of the Land Court (under the new section 60 of that Act) and the right to make a joint reference to arbitration or other method of determination (under the new section 61(1) of that Act).

Paragraph 10(1)

302.Schedule 2 of the 1986 Act makes provision for the tenants' rights to compensation for milk quotas. Paragraph 7(2) of that Schedule specifies certain matters which are to be disregarded for the purposes of a review of rent under section 13 of the 1991 Act. This amendment reflects the replacement of the system of compulsory arbitration which applied to section 13 by the universal jurisdiction of the Land Court provided for in the new section 60 of the 1991 Act.
