§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is delaying the payment of compensation to landowners whose property has been taken by his Department for the construction of the M25 motorway at Byfleet.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
There is no general delay in the payment of compensation for land taken for the M25 advance bridgeworks at Byfleet. I shall write very shortly to my hon. Friend in reply to his recent inquiry about a particular property.
