Premises in which more than one local authority are interested

".— (1) If a compulsory purchase order authorises acquisition of the interest or estate of more than one local authority, whether or not each of them were using the premises to discharge obligations as respects the abolished courts, the notice under paragraph 3(1)(a) above shall be given to each of them.

(2) Sub-paragraphs (4) and (5) of paragraph 3, and paragraphs 4, 5 and 6 of this Schedule shall not apply to a local authority who, although having an interest or estate in the premises, were not using the premises to discharge any obligation to provide accommodation for the abolished courts.

This sub-paragraph is without prejudice to the application of the said provisions to the local authority in relation to any other premises.

(3) If different parts of the premises were used for different abolished courts, subparagraph (2) above shall be applied to the different parts of the premises as if the parts were different premises.

There shall be made all such apportionments of compensation for compulsory purchase and of loan charges and other sums as are required to give effect to this sub-paragraph, and to take account of ancillary accommodation and of the degree to which it served the respective courts."
