HC Deb 28 April 1955 vol 540 c78W
57. Mr. Alport

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will take measures to extend the time before which claims must be made in respect of transactions occurring between August, 1947, and November, 1952, or of development charges paid during the time when such charges were current, beyond the end of April, in view of the obstacles created by the newspaper strike to informing claimants of their rights.

Mr. Deedes:

As I stated on Tuesday, in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Powell) my right hon. Friend has made a regulation extending until the end of June the period during which claims may be made.
