HC Deb 08 November 1979 vol 973 c243W
Mr. Weetch

asked the Attorney-General what efforts he is making currently to make improvements and simplification in conveyancing procedures.

The Attorney-General

In accordance with the policy endorsed by the report of the Royal Commission on legal services—Cmnd. 7648—the Land Registry is working hard to extend the system of registered title, upon which the improvement and simplification of conveyancing largely depends. In addition, the Law Commission is preparing a report on land registration, which it hopes to publish before the end of next year; and the Royal Commission has made certain suggestions on conveyancing matters, which are being studied.
