§ 66. Mr. EMLYN-JONES
asked the Minister of Health the number of cases 1382 in which, owing to the price asked for land for housing schemes being in excess of what was considered reasonable, it has been necessary to apply for a compulsory order for purchase; and the number of schemes being at present held up for this reason?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
Since the beginning of 1923 three compulsory orders for the acquisition of land in connection with housing schemes have been confirmed, and I have information of six other cases in which such orders have recently been made by local authorities.
