“(4.)    Where a Proclamation has been made under the last preceding sub-section, then, for the purposes of this Act, the period commencing on the first day of July, One thousand nine hundred and sixty-five, and ending on the date specified in the Proclamation shall be deemed to be, and at all times from the first day of July, One thousand nine hundred and sixty-five, to have been, a period to which this Act applies in lieu of the period specified in paragraph (d) of sub-section (2.) of this section.
