HC Deb 07 December 1982 vol 33 c450W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to amend the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 in order to prevent ground landlords obstructing the completion of the freehold purchase.

Sir George Young

The Leasehold Reform Act 1967 and the Leasehold Reform (Enfranchisement and Extension) Regulations 1967 already contain provisions to prevent either party to enfranchisement proceedings from delaying matters unduly.
