HC Deb 13 May 1947 vol 437 cc1329-30

This Amendment is rendered necessary as a result of the change of the 1939 standard. (b) of subsection (1) of Section one of that Act; Provided that Section two of the said Act shall not apply to the compulsory acquisition of land under this subsection.

Mr. H. Strauss

I should like to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether, in the choice of the land which the Minister of Transport can acquire under these powers, he has secured that the fullest consultation with his Department shall be made in every case.

Mr. Silkin

As the hon. and learned Gentleman knows, this is done by administration, and, as I have said before. it works in 999 cases out of 1,000.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.
