My noble Friend the Minister of State has today made the following reply in another placeA consultation paper on the compensation provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 is being sent to interested bodies today and copies are being placed in the Library.During the passage of the Town and Country Planning (Compensation) Act 1985, the Government undertook to review these provisions. The consultation paper concludes that there should be no change to the basic framework of the existing law of planning compensation, but proposes amendment of a number of the provisions.A similar consultation paper on the compensation provisions of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1972 is being sent to interested bodies in Scotland and copies are also being placed in the Library.
