HC Deb 25 July 1956 vol 557 c41W
81. Mr. Donnelly

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what further progress he has made in the payment of compensation to the owners of orange trees felled by security forces in the Famagusta area.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Offers have now been made to all the owners concerned and payment is being made on demand to those who have accepted. An Arbitration Board is being set up under the relevant Emergency Regulation to hear the outstanding claims.
