HC Deb 17 May 1994 vol 243 c424W
Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many representations he has had from individuals and organisations relating to the inclusion of Llangollen in a new unitary authority of Wrexham; how many were in favour of this development; and what dates they were received in his office.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

My right hon. Friend and I have received 19 representations about the implications of local government reorganisation for the community of Llangollen. The details are as follows:

Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will ensure that the valuation of homes blighted by the proposed Buckley-Clwyd link road is satisfactory; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

The scheme is the responsibility of Clwyd county council, which is obliged to pay the open market value of the homes required. Where the value is disputed home owners can refer the issue to the Lands Tribunal, an independent expert body appointed to deal with such disputes.
