§ Mr. Carol Johnson
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) what conclusions he has reached arising out of his reconsideration of the question of help for those owner-occupiers whose property is under threat as a result of proposed public development on nearby land and who, as a result, cannot sell their property at a reasonable price;
(2) whether he has yet reached a decision on the programme for legislation on the present compensation code, to meet the cases of blight arising from threatened public development.
§ Mr. Denis Howell:
We have not yet completed the wide-ranging examination referred to in the statement I made in the debate on the Planning Blight and Worsenment Bill on 27th February.
