§ Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Secretary of State for Transport why the Treasury Solicitor, acting on his instructions, has failed to reply to the letter dated 4 September 1986 from Messrs Dunn and Baker, solicitors, acting on behalf of Mr. Winston George Wright of Westcott Farm, Cullompton; and whether he will instruct the Treasury Solicitor to settle this matter forthwith, and to make an interim payment on account.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
The Treasury Solicitor replied to the letter on 4 September 1986 and has written twice subsequently to Mr. Wright's solicitors. The Department will seek an early meeting with Messrs Dunn and Baker. It is hoped that this will settle the outstanding matters, including the question of an interim payment.
