HL Deb 11 June 1936 vol 101 c4

My Lords, I beg to move the Resolution standing in my name, that this Order be approved. It is a matter arising out of the Act of 1925. By that Act it was provided that compulsory registration of land should not be applied except by request of the county councils until this year. A Committee was appointed to look into the question and to report as to where the compulsory land registration should first be extended, and they reported in favour of the County of Middlesex. Accordingly, it is proposed to make an Order applying the compulsory land registration to that County. That Order has been approved in another place. It has been submitted to the Special Orders Committee of your Lordships' House, and they have reported that, whatever important questions of policy and principle were raised, they were questions which had already been determined in the year 1925. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Special Order, as reported from the Special Orders Committee on the 28th of May last, be approved.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
