HC Deb 26 February 1948 vol 447 c2123
52. Mr. Manningham-Buller

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he has yet reached a decision about the sending of notices to all persons who may have a claim to increased rental compensation under the Requisitioned Land and War Works Act, 1948.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Yes, Sir. I am glad to say that I have been able to make arrangements to this end. A suitable notice is now being printed, and the requisitioning departments will send it to all existing recipients of rental compensation before the end of March. Local authorities are being asked to follow the same procedure.

Mr. Manningham-Buller

Will the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that his action in this matter will be treated as a precedent in the future in meeting points raised by his Majesty's Opposition?
