HC Deb 07 July 1960 vol 626 c52W
56. Mr. Boyden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in how many cases during the last three years the Prison Commissioners have stopped negotiating for the purchase of sites or houses owing to the vendor refusing to accept the district valuer's price.

Mr. Vosper

In no case have negotiations been broken off finally, though in four cases there were temporary suspensions. One case is at present pending.
