HC Deb 11 March 1952 vol 497 c134W
Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many claims for compensation under Part VI of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, and the corresponding Scottish Measure, have been rejected under the de minimis provisions of Sections 63 and 60 of those Acts, respectively; and what was the total amount known by the district valuers of the Inland Revenue to have been claimed in such cases.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Up to 29th February, 1952, the Central Land Board had prepared determinations for about 5,000 claims in England and Wales and 4,000 in Scotland as falling within thede minimis provisions of Sections 63 and 60 respectively.

As to the second part of the Question, claimants were not required to state the amount claimed and most of them did not do so The information is, therefore I regret not available.
