HC Deb 27 May 1930 vol 239 cc987-8
44. Lieut.-Colonel Sir A. LAMBERT WARD

asked the Attorney-General the reason why steps are not being taken to increase the number of compulsory areas of registration of property at His Majesty's Land Registry?

The SOLICITOR-GENERAL (Sir James Melville)

It rests with each county council or county borough council to take the initiative in this matter. The Act provides that no compulsory order shall be made except at the instance of these bodies until the 1st January, 1936.
