It is this service that the Land Commission will be able to provide.

Clause 2: New Clause B (13 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Perhaps I might reply to the right hon. Gentleman's remarks, as my Department has a general oversight over the compensation code. I do not think that there is any confusion about the way in which these provision will work.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 13. (22 May 1968)
