HC Deb 26 January 1971 vol 810 cc61-2W
40. Mr. Pounder

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to abolish quit rents in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

No, but I am advised that the Crown Estate Com- missioners, who are responsible for collecting these rents, are willing to discuss any problems which exist in connection with them, including whether the repeal of obsolete legislation could be achieved without prejudicing the collection of outstanding quit rents.
