HC Deb 03 March 1938 vol 332 cc1305-6W
Commander Marsden

asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that the increasing number of houses and the rebuilding on the cleared slum areas render it desirable that the advantages of the Land Registration Act, 1925, should be made more widely available without further delay; and will he request the Ordnance Survey Department to complete one or more additional surveys of the compulsory areas now being considered for selection by Mr. Attorney-General to enable Section 120 of the Act to be put into operation as soon as the next, and the next-after, areas are added to the land registry?

The Attorney-General

As I stated on the 23rd February, in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-on-Tyne, West (Sir J. Leech) the question of the area next to be selected for an order under Section 120 of the Land Registration Act, 1925, is in an advanced state of consideration. Until that question has been decided, it is not possible to undertake any such special work as may be necessary for the preparation of maps for the area.
