§ Mr. Gorst
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the present rules governing claims for compensation under the Compensation Code; when they come into force; and from where copies of the rules can be obtained by members of the public for the purpose of ascertaining whether a potential claim would be valid.
§ Mr. Graham Page
The compensation code is partly defined in statute, mainly the Land Compensation Act, 1961 and the Compulsory Purchase Act, 1965, and partly derived from decisions of the Lands Tribunal and the Courts.
Copies of these enactments can be obtained through HMSO, reports of the decision from the Law Reports, explanations thereof from legal text books and advice thereon from the legal and valuation professions
