(3)The Act of 1965, as applied by this Act, shall have effect with the modifications necessary to make it apply to the compulsory purchase of new rights under subsection (2) above as it applies to the compulsory purchase of land so that, in appropriate contexts, references in the Act of 1965 to land are read as referring, or as including references, to the new rights or to land over which the new rights are, or are to be, exercisable, according to the requirements of the particular context.

(4)Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (3) above in relation to the purchase of new rights under subsection (2) above—

19Extinction of private rights of way

(1)All private rights of way over any land which may be purchased compulsorily under this Act shall be extinguished on the purchase of the land by the Company, whether compulsorily or by agreement, or on the entry on the land in pursuance of section 11 (1) of the Act of 1965, as applied by this Act, whichever is sooner.

(2)Any person who suffers loss by the extinguishment of any right under this section shall be entitled to be paid by the Company compensation to be determined in case of dispute by the tribunal.

20Correction of errors in deposited plan and book of reference

(2)If on any such application it appears to the justices that the misstatement or wrong description arose from mistake, the justices shall certify the fact accordingly and shall in their certificate state in what respect any matter is misstated or wrongly described.

(3)The certificate shall be deposited in the office of the Clerk of the Parliaments, and a copy thereof in the Private Bill Office of the House of Commons, and with the proper officer or chairman of a local authority with whom a copy of the deposited plan has been deposited in accordance with the Standing Orders of the Houses of Parliament, or who has the custody of any such copy so deposited; and thereupon the deposited plan and the deposited book of reference shall be deemed to be corrected according to the certificate, and it shall be lawful for the Company to take the land and execute the works in accordance with the certificate.
