HC Deb 26 March 1930 vol 237 c416
50. Mr. EDE

asked the Minister of Transport if it is the practice of his Department, when approving schemes involving the throwing of common land or manorial wastes into a highway, to provide for the throwing of at least an equivalent area of land into the common or waste?


Cases of this kind are not necessarily brought to the notice of my Department. Where, however, there is a statutory obligation to provide other land in exchange for common land acquired for road purposes, it is my practice to allow as grant-earning expenditure the cost of any land needed for the purpose.
