§ 42. Mr. Hay
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what information as to individual admitted claims for loss of development value under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, is being supplied to local authorities by the Central Land Board.
§ Mr. H. Macmillan
The Valuation Office, as the agents of the Central Land Board, have been authorised to tell local authorities the amount of any admitted claims relating to land which they have bought or are proposing to buy. Information about admitted claims is also supplied to local authorities who are faced with applications for permission to develop land and wish to estimate the cost of a refusal.
§ Mr. Macmillan
It is only right that they should be informed in order to know what claim they may have to meet.
