§ Mr. Favell
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he proposes to introduce legislation to remedy the problems arising from the misregistration of property as common land.
§ Mr. Moynihan
[pursuant to his reply, 21 October 1987]: This is one of a series of recommendations contained in the report of the Common Land Forum, which was published by the Countryside Commission in September 1986. My right hon. Friend announced on 29 January 1987 that the Government accept the case for legislation based broadly on the forum's report and intends to introduce a comprehensive Commons Bill at a suitable opportunity when parliamentary time permits.
