Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the Philippines in Legislature assembled and by the authority of the same:

SECTION 1. Section  nine of Act Numbered Twenty-one hundred and fifty-two as amended by section four of Act Numbered  Twenty-six hundred  and  fifty-two, is hereby further amended to read as follows:

"(b) The  priority number of such appropriation.

"(c) The  amount of  prior  appropriations.

"(d) The  amount, of water to which the appropriator is entitled.

"(e) And  if such appropriations be for irrigation, a description of the legal subdivisions of the lands to-which said water is to be diverted.

"It shall thereupon be the duty of the Director of Public Works to issue  to  each appropriator  represented in such list a certificate signed by the Secretary of  Commerce and Communications, setting forth the information shown  in items  (a), (b)  (c); (d) and  (e) of  this section relating to his appropriation.
