HC Deb 30 July 1976 vol 916 c477W
Mr. Giles Shaw

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many purchases of land or property his Department has made in connection with the Kirkhamgate-Dishforth motorway proposals; how many were made along the two westerly routes and how many along the two easterly routes; and what are the total costs to public funds of these purchases.

Mr. Marks

Three properties affected by the alternatives west of Leeds have been purchased at the request of owners. There have been no such requests from owners for properties affected by the alternatives east of Leeds. The total cost to public funds is about £40.000.
