HC Deb 20 February 1963 vol 672 c424
11. Mr. McInnes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Reid Committee, appointed in 1959 to consider conveyancing and registration of title to land, will submit its report.

The Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Lady Tweedsmuir)

I understand that the Report has only to be signed. My right hon. Friend expects to receive it very shortly.

Mr. McInnes

Will the noble Lady indicate if the Report has yet been received by the Department? On the last occasion I asked a Question about it I was told that it would be ready towards the end of last year.

Lady Tweedsmuir

The reason for the further delay was that the Committee had to make some final adjustments to the Report. The Report, as I said, will be received very shortly.
