HC Deb 29 March 1955 vol 539 cc15-6W
83. Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he can now state when the Land Board will commence authorisation of immediate payment of compensation under Part of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1954, to persons whose land has been acquired by local authorities and others at restricted price under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, and whose claims for compensation have been previously agreed with the Land Board.

Mr. Sandys

The Central Land Board have already made 1,761 payments amounting to nearly £4 million to persons whose land was sold at a restricted price. Many more payments of this kind have been determined and will be made as soon as the statutory time for appeals has expired.
