asked the Minister of Transport what practice he proposes to follow with regard to compensation for businesses and property which are depreciated in value by the construction of by-passes to main roads under his direct control?

The Minister of Transport (Mr. HoreBelisha)

Equally with any other highway authority our practice is governed by the general law in this matter.
