§ Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Transport, in the special circumstances of the planned abolition of the Greater London council, and proposals to designate 70 miles of existing metropolitan roads as part of the national trunk road network, what provision will be made to compensate those who live on those roads for the attendant loss of property values.
§ Mrs. Chalker
None. Compensation is payable only if properties are adversely affected by specific works which alter a road. The mere change of its administrative status does not give rise to compensation.
