Administrative historyThe enabling Act of an undertaking normally laid down the procedure for claiming compensation as well as the deposit of warrants and inquisitions with the Clerk of the Peace. This was made general by the Land Clauses Consolidation Act of 1845 (8 & 9 Victoria cap. 18, s. 50). There are only two cases, relating to property in Carlton Miniott acquired by the Great North of England Railway Company and in Haxby acquired by the York and North Midland Railway Company
