May I ask my right hon. Friend whether his attention has been drawn to the Motion standing on the Order Paper in my name relating to compensation for compulsory purchase? I wonder whether my right hon. Friend knows this sad story and that the life of one man concerned with the property in question has already been shortened. Bearing in mind what happened to Mr. Pilgrim and the lack of time for debate, will my right hon. Friend personally interest himself in the matter, or even be willing to see me upon it?
