Rolling contract help

Hi there, I would like to end my tenancy after my landlord has written to increase my rent after waiting until I started my maternity pay but I am so confused when reading the contract. Is it one months notice I need to give or 2?
This is how it is written in the contract;

Expiring on: Tuesday 30th April 2019
After the said date, the contract will become a rolling 2 monthly contract with the tenant giving 1 months notice.

Thank you

Very poorly drafted if that is what it says. Normally, a tenant would give a minimum of one months notice expiring at the end of a tenancy period, (usually the day before rent day). This means that in practice it will be somewhere between 1 and 2 months. However, if it says in the contract that you only have to give one month notice, then give that.
