HC Deb 28 May 1924 vol 174 c435W

asked the Attorney-General whether, in view of the cheap transfer of land being one of the first essentials in the housing problem, he will take steps to arrange for the operation of the Land Registry Act of 1897 through, out the Kingdom, so that its benefits may be extended beyond the present limit of the county of London?


The Government will be prepared to make orders establishing compulsory registration of title to land in any county or counties where application is made for such an order by the county council concerned in accordance with the provisions of the Land Transfer Act, 1897.
