HC Deb 09 February 1960 vol 617 cc207-8
7. Mr. W. Clark

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether, before confirming a compulsory purchase order, he will insist on an assurance that adjoining owners of the site in question have been informed of their rights under Section 68 of the Land Clauses Consolidation Act.

Sir K. Joseph

No, Sir. The great majority of compulsory purchase orders do not give grounds for claims under this Section, and it would therefore be misleading to notify adjoining owners.
