(1) The manorial incidents affecting enfranchised land saved by Part V of this Act, and all manorial incidents of a like nature affecting any other land shall by virtue of this Act be extinguished in respect of the land thereby affected, but subject to the payment of such compensation (if any) in respect of any manorial incidents referred to in Part H of the Thirteenth Schedule to this Act, whether the incidents are saved by Part V of this Act or not, as is payable under the provisions of this Part of this Act, upon the happening of any of the following events:

( b) where a notice requiring the ascertainment of such compensation is served by the lord on the tenant or by the tenant on the lord within ten years after the commencement of this Act, then upon service of the notice.

I beg to move, at the end of Sub-section (1, b), to insert the words

"but the lord shall not be entitled to serve such notice till after the expiration of five years from such commencement."
This is a part of the Bill dealing with compensation for the extinguishment of manorial incidents. The Amendment I move is only likely to be wanted on very rare occasions. A good many copyholders think some lords of the manor might be a little arbitrary or capricious and this Clause is put in for their protection in such cases. This is to all intents and purposes a formal Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
