HC Deb 09 December 1963 vol 686 cc6-7W
46. Mr. C. Johnson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress has been made with the preparatory work necessary for the registration of all common land, as proposed by the Royal Commission on Common Land; and when he expects to introduce the legislation required to carry this and the other recommendations of the Royal Commission into effect.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

I regret that pressure of Parliamentary time has so far prevented the introduction of legislation on the lines indicated by my right hon. Friend on 6th November, 1961 in reply to a Question from my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Knutsford (Sir W. Bromley-Davenport). The hon. Member may rest assured that we have not overlooked the need to be fully prepared when time becomes available.
