HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 cc1187-8W
Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Attorney-General whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to introduce legislation to secure leasehold enfranchisement.

Sir R. Young

asked the Attorney-General whether it is the Government's intention to review existing statutory provisions governing leasehold property with a view to enabling the holder of existing leasehold property to have an option to purchase the freehold at a value determined by an appointed competent authority.

The Attorney-General

This is a question which for many years has been the subject of considerable controversy in this House, and with the heavy reconstruction programme in hand it would be inappropriate at present to revive it.
