HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 c162W
94. Mr. J. Rodgers

asked the Minister of Transport what he is doing to tidy up and keep in order the strips of land on the north side of Talgarth Road, London, which were acquired under compulsory powers by his Department.

Mr. Marples

This land was acquired by the London County Council for their part of the Cromwell Road Extension. They are responsible for it and I understand that plans for its development are well advanced. My noble Friend the Parliamentary Secretary has already stated in another place that I should be willing to pay grant towards the cost of laying out any small remnants of land that cannot be developed and are thrown into the highway.
