HC Deb 08 July 1959 vol 608 cc1356-7
53. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many of the thirty-one farmers in Worcestershire who on 29th April had not been paid for land taken for construction of the Ross Spur motorway have since received payment; and if he will expedite payment to the remainder.

The Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation (Mr. Harold Watkinson)

Eleven owners have received payment in full or advances of 90 per cent. Eleven others will receive full payment or advances when documents are returned by their solicitors. One application has been withdrawn and in two others there are questions of title. In six cases no application for an advance has been made.
