    (9) For the purposes of this section the amount of any disbursements or expenses attributable to an agricultural estate shall be determined as if—

     (b) disbursements and expenses in respect of parts of the estate used partly for purposes of husbandry and partly for other purposes were to be reduced to an extent corresponding to the extent to which those parts were used for other purposes.
