42. Mr. Vane

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many claims he has received for the repayment of development charge; how many such claims are classified as not established; and what are the total sums involved.

Mr. Deedes

Up to 29th April, 1955, the Central Land Board had received 78,829 applications for payments under Part I of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1954. Of the total applications received, 13,489 were from claim-holders who had paid a development charge. A detailed analysis of the applications is being made, but is not yet complete.

Mr. Vane

Thank you.
