This fund was, however, not to be open-ended but to have a finite limit of around five years to meet all claims: five years was seen as a reasonable time span in which development of'dead ripe' land might take place. 48 Two further problems remained for the Committee, namely compensation for land which the state compulsorily purchased for its own purposes and state betterment recoupment.

53 The 1944 Act also allowed local authorities in war damaged areas to purchase their land at the existing use value of 31st March 1939. This was one of the main recommendations of the Uthwatt Committee but it was only granted initially to these specific local authorities. 54 In History of land and property policy (1845-1945) 41 1943 a new Ministry of Town and Country Planning was also created to have responsibility for all land use planning. Despite these substantial successes and the real measure of agreement that had been reached in the Coalition government on the need for a more positive state role after the war, there was still a fundamental measure of disagreement in the government.

It was not just that builders and landowners, attached to the Conservative Party and having close connections with the Whitehall ministries, were strongly placed to oppose these measures. (Ambrose indeed has argued that this was the main reason - although it would appear to be an over-estimation of their power, given that fairly punitive financial measures were eventually agreed upon). 76 It was also that the issue of compensation and betterment was, and is, an extremely complex issue as between individual and state rights.
