HC Deb 03 December 1951 vol 494 c2013
40. Mr. Desmond Donnelly

asked the Attorney-General whether he has any statement to make regarding the Government's intentions to reform the law of leaseholds.

The Solicitor-General

I have nothing to add to the answer my hon. and learned Friend gave on 19th November to the hon. Member for Pontypool (Mr. West).

Mr. Donnelly

Is the hon. and learned Gentleman aware that if the Government do not do something about accepting a general principle of leasehold enfranchisement in this matter, they are in for a first-class row in Wales; and as this is one of the things which his party did not promise at the General Election, is there any hope of us getting it?

The Solicitor-General

The Government are fully aware of the necessity for taking action with regard to the problem left behind by the late Government.
