Report (4th Day)
Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]
Baroness Byford (Conservative)
My Lords, before my noble friend does that, perhaps I can ask the Minister a question. He explained quite rightly that this matter will go out to consultation. However, if for any reason that consultation comes down against the person regarding his land or a business operating on it, no compensation at all is provided for in the Bill as it stands. I may have missed it, but there should be something if there is to be a loss of income as a result of a decision, even if the matter has gone to consultation and even if the decision may go against the individual.
