HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 c17W
100. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many individuals or organisations have been paid compensation from the £300 millions Government fund because permission has been refused to them by the planning authorities; how much has been paid in compensation; how many claims are now pending; and what restrictions are placed on the recipients of this money as to the future use of the land concerned.

Mr. H. Brooke

11,568 claims, totalling £27,599,000, had been paid up to 18th October. 3,332 claims were pending on that date. The figures are for Great Britain. Future development of the land is subject to planning control in the ordinary way, and the compensation may be required to be repaid if subsequently the land is developed.
