The legislative purposes of the Act Governing the Reduction of Farm Rent to 37.5 Percent (hereinafter the " Act") are to improve the tenancy system, stabilize the society of agricultural communities, promote agricultural production, increase the income of farmers as well as to lay a foundation for the economic development of the country. In order to integrate Article 19 of the Act with the measures for overall agriculture land reform in 1983, it was therefore revised as "upon the expiration of the tenancy, the landlord may repossess the tenant farm for the purpose of expanding the scale of his family farms." However, in order to protect the right to life of tenant farmers who make livings by tenant farming, Article 19, Paragraph 1, Subsection 3, of the Act further provides that if the landlord*s repossession of a tenant farm would result in the tenant farmer*s being unable to support his family, the landlord shall not repossess the tenant farm upon the expiration of the tenancy. Directive T. (49) N.T. No. 7226 of the Executive Yuan dated December 23, 1960, stated that the Living Expense Standard Table for the Division of Conscription of that year shall apply to estimate the annual living expense of the tenant farmer, spouse and lineal relatives who live in the same household; Directive T.N. D.T. No. 266779 of the Ministry of the Interior dated November 1, 1984, stated that the standard for reviewing the income and living expense of the tenant farmer, tenant farmer*s spouse and lineal relatives of the tenant farmer who live in the same household shall be calculated with reference to their annual income and their annual living expense of the year before the expiration of the tenancy. Therefore, the standard of minimum living expense listed in Taiwan*s Minimum Living Expense Standard Table for the Division of Conscription shall be used to estimate the family living expense of tenant farmers. However, it is neither realistic nor reasonable to apply fixed amounts to estimate the family living expense of individual tenant farmers without considering the commodity prices in different areas, the actual family livelihood and other individual circumstances of the tenant farmer on a case-by-case basis, such as necessary medical and insurance expenses or difficulties the tenant farmer may encounter. Hence the abovementioned Directives are inconsistent with the Constitutional intention to protect farmers and therefore shall not be applied.
