HC Deb 25 October 1949 vol 468 c1128
5. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what are the aggregate amounts of claims of specified sums for loss of development rights in respect of properties in England and Wales and in Scotland, respectively.

Mr. Silkin

The great proportion of the 900,000-odd claims received have already been distributed all over the country to valuation offices for assessment, and the value of the information asked for would not justify the dislocation and cost involved in recalling and summarising them to obtain it.
