HC Deb 04 May 1925 vol 183 c607W

asked the Attorney-General whether, as the Law of Property Act and the kindred Acts which passed into law last month, and commence at the beginning of next year, repeal and re-enact the principal portions of the Law of Property Act, 1922, and the amending Act of 1924, he will consider the desirability of introducing a Bill to repeal and re-enact in simple form those remaining provisions of those Acts of 1922 and 1924 which are not repealed by the Acts of the present year?


I have consulted the Lord Chancellor with regard to this suggestion, and he does not think that the advantage to be gained by the right hon. and gallant Gentleman's proposal would be such as to justify the labour and expense involved.
