HC Deb 12 June 1974 vol 874 cc554-5W
61. Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is now in a position to make a statement on the ways in which the recommendations of the Borner Committee on the functions of valuers in local government, etc., are to be implemented.

Mr. John Silkin

Consultation with the local authority associations over the selective checking of local authorities' land transactions has begun. The other main recommendation accepted, for simplified machinery to settle disputes over small claims, is under active consideration.
