§ 49 and 50. Mr. Donnelly
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) if he will take steps to compensate developers for legal expenses incurred as a result of previous Government policy and now rendered abortive by the changes announced in the White Paper;
(2) whether, in the drafting of the Finance Bill, he will provide for the repayment of charges already imposed by the Land Commission together with interest accrued on all developments that fall within the exempted categories in the White Paper.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I would refer the hon. Member to the White Paper which states that the new provisions will apply to chargeable acts or events occurring after the 5th April, 1969.
