HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c405W
Mr. Hirst

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he is satisfied with the state of the law relating to compensation for property compulsorily acquired; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Corfield

My right hon. Friend is satisfied that the market value rule of compensation which covers the general field and the site value rule which is the general basis for houses that are unfit for habitation are right. I would however refer my hon. Friend to the Answers my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Blackburn (Mrs. Castle) on 14th July.
