HC Deb 19 March 1906 vol 154 cc97-8
MR. EUGENE WASON (Clackmannan and Kinross)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether his attention has been called to a Resolution of the Town Council of Alva urging upon the Government to appoint a Commission to institute a careful and exhaustive investigation into the present system of conveying land in Scotland, the registration of writs affecting the same, and the complaints as to delay and expense which it occasions; and whether he will be prepared to appoint such a Commission.


A number of representations, including that mentioned by my hon. friend, have been received, and the subject is now under the consideration of the Government, but I cannot as yet make any announcement as to the conclusions at which they have arrived.
