Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give figures to show how much of Scotland is now covered by the land registration system.

Mr. Younger

Compulsory registration of sales of heritable property under the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 came into effect for the county of Renfrew on 6 April 1981. Up to 5 June 1982, 7,462 units of property had been so registered. The next extension of the land register will be to the county of Dunbarton on 4 October 1982.
