HC Deb 03 April 1974 vol 871 cc1246-7
15. Mr. Cyril Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will announce early plans to correct the anomalies existing in the Land Compensation Act 1973 whereby people who live in houses on which compulsory purchase orders have been served, but who are rehoused by the relevant local authorities before the compulsory purchase orders have been confirmed, lose their rights under the Act.

Mr. John Silkin

I am writing to the hon. Member on a case he has recently drawn to my attention. If he cares to send me details of any other cases he has in mind, I shall be glad to look at them carefully to see whether any anomalies arise.
