asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the reasons for the delay in settling compensation claims arising from the requisitioning of land for the purposes of Greenham Common Airfield, including the by-pass road; and if all outstanding claims have now been settled.

Of the claims made in connection with land requisitioned for the airfield, all but one have been settled. In the outstanding case, an offer was made by the Air Ministry some time ago but is still being considered by the claimant.As I explained to my hon. Friend in my letter of 22nd April, the negotiations over compensation for land taken for the new diversion road are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation.
