HC Deb 04 March 1930 vol 236 cc259-60W

asked the Attorney-General how many local authorities have exercised their optional powers under the Land Registration Act, 1926, and made compulsory the registration of land on sale in their areas?


Registration of title land is compulsory on sale in the County of London and in the county boroughs of Eastbourne and Hastings—the Orders in Council affecting Eastbourne and Hastings having been made at the instance of the county borough councils of those boroughs. The county borough council of Brighton have passed a resolution to apply for a similar Order, and the application is before the Privy Council.
