4   Acquisition of property

             (1)  This Act does not apply to the extent (if any) that its operation would result in an acquisition of property (within the meaning of paragraph 51(xxxi) of the Constitution) from a person otherwise than on just terms (within the meaning of that paragraph).

             (2)  The following subsections do not limit subsection (1).

             (3)  If, apart from this section, this Act would result in such an acquisition of property because, as a result of a repeal or an amendment made in a Schedule to this Act, a person would be required or permitted to use, disclose or publish information, then despite any other provision of this Act, the person is not required or permitted to use, disclose or publish the information in the circumstances that would result in such an acquisition.
