holding answer 3 July 2012

As set out in the “Review of Property Issues” published in January 2012, I believe that there is a strong case for introducing a new hardship-based property purchase scheme to help individuals and families who through no fault of their own have an urgent need to move and cannot do so because of HS2. We will shortly publish our compensation proposals for consultation.
