HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 cc403-4W
82. Mr. A. Royle

asked the Minister of Transport if she will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to enable the Greater London Council to compensate householders living near the line of a road and whose property will be affected by the proposed London motorway box system even if the property is not liable to demolition due to construction work.

Mr. Swingler:

No. We do not consider that compensation of this kind arising from new roads in Greater London should be paid on a different basis from that applying outside London or in respect of other forms of development.
