HC Deb 21 November 1946 vol 430 cc169-70W
137. Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Attorney-General why legislation comparable to Section 3 of the Courts (Emergency Powers) (No. 2) Act, 1916, has not been introduced to ensure that rights of light are not acquired by prescription against hereditaments, the development of which has been and will for some time be impossible.

The Solicitor-General

Legislation on the lines suggested would, so tar as I am aware, affect only a few isolated cases, and there has been accordingly no sufficient need for it to be introduced. If, however, my hon. Friend considers that a substantial case for such legislation can be made out, I should be very glad to consider any representations he may care to make.
