I beg to move amendment 84, in clause 20, page 22, line 3, at end insert—

‘(c) paragraph 22 of Schedule 3 to the Harbours Act 1964 (harbour revision or empowerment order authorising compulsory purchase of, or of rights over, inalienable National Trust land or land forming part of a common, open space or fuel or field garden allotment),

(d) paragraph 12 or 13 of Schedule 4 to the New Towns Act 1981 (order authorising compulsory purchase of local authority land, inalienable National Trust land or land forming part of a common, open space or fuel or field garden allotment), or

(e) section 12 of the Transport and Works Act 1992 (order authorising compulsory purchase of, or of rights over, inalienable National Trust land or land forming part of a common, open space or fuel or field garden allotment).

(4) A reference in this Act to land to which a special-acquisition provision applies is to be read as follows—

(a) “land” has the same meaning as it has for the purposes of the special-acquisition provision, and

(b) in the case of a special-acquisition provision mentioned in subsection (3)(c) or (e), the reference is to—

(i) land (as so defined) belonging to the National Trust which is held by the Trust inalienably, or

(ii) land (as so defined) forming part of a common, open space or fuel or field garden allotment.

(5) The definition of “the National Trust” given by section 7(1) of the Acquisition of Land Act 1981, and section 18(3) of that Act (meaning of “held inalienably”), apply for the purposes of subsection (4)(b)(i).

(6) In subsection (4)(b)(ii) “common”, “fuel or field garden allotment” and “open space” have the same meaning as in section 19 of that Act.”’.
