This Act makes rules for the sale of public land that has been rendered habitable or arable through Government waterworks. The purpose of the sale is to populate these areas. A Commission shall be formed to carry out land measurements, to prepare the plans of land to be sold and to establish prices. Lands shall be divided into three categories according to their potential use and be priced accordingly. No private lands shall be included into the charts of sale and “the rights of original owners will not be impaired”. An announcement of sale shall be made in accordance with articles 3 and 4. Applications for purchase of land shall be made to the Department of Agriculture. Article 6 establishes the size of land that may be purchased, whereas article 7 establishes priority of applications. Other provisions concern prices of land, and supervision and control. (12 articles)
