HC Deb 18 December 1979 vol 976 cc123-4W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Attorney-General whether he will ask the Law Commission to review the operation of the taw in relation to building societies.

The Solicitor-General

I refer the right hon. Member to the reply which my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury gave to the hon. Member for Thurrock (Dr. McDonald) on 15 November.—[Vol. 973, c.765.] I have to add that the Law Commission does not regard itself as the appropriate body to conduct a review of this nature, and the Lord Chancellor endorses its view.
