HC Deb 22 May 1941 vol 371 c1601W
Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings what rentals are being paid for the use of land requisitioned by his Department for storage purposes; and what is the basis upon which these payments are made?

Mr. Hicks

The sums paid for sites requisitioned for the erection of storage buildings vary according to the local circumstances. They are assessed in accordance with the terms of the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939.
