§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he proposes to make any changes in the present arrangements for apportioning and redeeming rent charges and fixed ground rents following the consultation paper issued in September 1982.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
I have decided to introduce legislation when a suitable opportunity presents itself. Following the lines indicated in the consultation paper, the effect would be to enable rent charges and fixed ground rents to be apportioned and redeemed by notices served between the parties without reference to my Department or the Welsh Office.
