HC Deb 15 December 1953 vol 522 c196
49. Mr. Warbey

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he proposes to introduce legislation to enable payments to be made from the £300 million fund to those persons who have admitted claims to compensation.

Mr. H. Macmillan

I hope to introduce a Town and Country Planning Bill before Easter.

Mr. Warbey

While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him to hasten this matter and especially to make it possible for people to release small capital sums which they may have invested in little plots of land?

Mr. Macmillan

I have always had that very much in mind, and, if I may, I would return the compliment by saying I am grateful to the hon. Member for his solicitude on behalf of landlords.
