HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 cc56-7W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will bring forward legislation to introduce registration of title to heritage in Scotland; if so, when he expects to do so; and if he has received any representations objecting to such a course of action.

Mr. Harry Ewing

It remains the Government's intention to introduce appropriate legislation, but I cannot at present give any commitment as to its timing. No representations have been received against the introduction of legislation on these lines.
