§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, pursuant to the answers to the hon. Member for Uxbridge on 29 October, he will make a statement on what is the normal equivalent basis of compensation; and if he can yet make any estimate of the sum involved in this case.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Compensation on the basis of the reasonable cost of equivalent reinstatement, where applicable, is a matter for negotiation between the parties in each individual case: or, in the event of a dispute, for determination by the Lands Tribunal.
No estimate of the likely level of compensation is yet available.
