§ 31. Mr. Golding
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now take steps to give compensation to all those whose properties are injuriously affected by new public development.
§ Mr. Graham Page
We shall decide what steps to take when we have completed the comprehensive review we have in hand of the compensation code.
§ Mr. Golding
Will the hon. Gentleman introduce compensation as quickly as possible for those who surfer financial loss because of the proximity of new roads such as the B road being built in North Staffordshire? Is he aware that there is growing concern about this problem?
§ Mr. Page
I am very anxious to put our proposals before the House as quickly as possible. It is a complex subject and there are large financial issues involved, but we will do our best to put it before the House at an early date.
