§ 48. Mr. GOULD
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the large number of people who are desirous of possessing the ground upon which their homes are built, and in view of the many thousands who have purchased houses as a consequence of the house shortage, such legislation should be introduced as will secure to these people leasehold enfranchisement?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Government cannot undertake, in the present state of public business, to introduce legislation upon the important matter to which my hon. Friend refers.
§ Mr. SEXTON
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is really no legal title to the private ownership of land, and that morally it is most objectionable?
