§ 1. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware of the widespread system under which one leaseholder in a block is responsible for collecting ground rents from his neighbours; and whether he will introduce legislation to end this practice.
§ The Attorney-General (Sir John Hobson)
I have no evidence that such a practice is widespread. In any event there are already statutory provisions under which the person responsible for collecting the rents can free himself from this obligation. I do not think there is a case for further legislation.
§ The Attorney-General
I should be delighted to oblige the hon. Member. I shall certainly send him particulars and perhaps we can have a discussion on them.
