43. Mr. W. T. Williams

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what steps he is taking to prevent an increase in the price of land in the Risley area of Lancashire, following his announcement of the intended establishment of a new town there.

Mr. Corfield

Any increase in value of land within the designated area due to the new town, or the prospect of it, will under existing legislation be excluded from the price paid for it by the New Town Development Corporation.
