HC Deb 26 July 1965 vol 717 c13W
Mr. Grant

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources if he is satisfied with the law relating to compensation payable in the case of compulsory acquisition of private dwelling-houses; and whether he will institute an inquiry into the present effect of such law.

Mr. Willey

Owners of private dwelling houses receive the full market value for their property when it is purchased together with all necessary expenses which they incur as the direct result of the purchase and I am satisfied that this is an equitable principle on which to base compensation. However if the hon. Member has any particular cases in mind where the considers injustice to have been done I shall be glad to examine them.
