§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will introduce legislation to ensure that wherever private property in Wales is taken over by local or central government, under compulsory purchase, interest will be paid on the sum of compensation from the day on which the property is transferred from the original owner until the final cash settlement is made.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
No. Existing legislation already provides for interest to run from the time of entry until compensation is paid.
