HC Deb 26 June 1956 vol 555 c38W
91. Mr. Awbery

asked the Attorney-General if he will make it a legal obligation upon any vendor of a dwelling-house to state specifically that the property he is selling is subject to or immediately liable to a compulsory purchase or clearance order when he is offering for sale property which might be affected by such orders within a reasonable period of the sale.

The Attorney-General

No. A proposal to extend vendors' obligations of disclosure was considered at length by the Stainton Committee on Local Land Charges, who reported in 1952, and the majority of the Committee advised convincingly against any such proposal.
