HC Deb 24 January 1972 vol 829 cc336-7W
Mr. Marks

asked the Attorney-General if he will introduce legislation to prevent the creation of leasehold on houses, and of permanent rent charges on freehold houses.

The Attorney-General

No. I have no evidence to suggest that leasehold interests in house property should be prohibited. The subject of rent charges is under consideration by the Law Commission, and any decision as to legislation must await its report.
