HC Deb 31 January 1962 vol 652 cc1088-9
34. Mr. McInnes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Reid Committee on Conveyancing and Registration of Title to Land is likely to report.

Mr. Brooman-White

I expect that the Committee will submit its Report later this year.

Mr. McInnes

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this Committee was appointed more than two-and-a-half years ago? Does he not regard that as a reasonable time for the Committee to investigate the matter and submit its Report?

Mr. Brooman-White

We have consulted Lord Reid, and he is aware of the urgency of the Report. I am sure that it will be available this year.
